You will be contacted when a provider becomes available in your East Kootenay community. Click here to register

Registrants will remain on the waitlist until connected with a provider. Only one application per person is required.

Please call 8-1-1 if you have any issues registering with the Health Connect Registry.

Using the new one-stop online directory, you can also view appointment options, and see other services your doctor is offering.
