The Fraser Northwest Division encompasses family physicians in Anmore, Belcarra, Coquitlam, New Westminster, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody. We represent the traditional catchment area of the Royal Columbian & Eagle Ridge Hospitals.
Together, the members work to improve patient access to local primary care, increase local physicians’ influence on health care delivery and policy, and provide professional support for physicians.

Family Doctors from the Fraser Northwest Division have set up a clinic in Tri-Cities for patients regarding any COVID-19 concerns. If you feel symptomatic or are concerned you may have COVID-19, or have come in contact with someone who has tested positive, you can book a telephone and in-person appointment by completing the intake/consent form.
Doctors' offices are still operating! Most family doctors are doing virtual, phone, and some in-person appointments. Click below to view a list of doctor's offices offering virtual care. If you don't have a doctor, or your doctor's office is not operating, you can use Pathways Virtual Care to see a family doctor virtually or in-person.
