Kootenay Boundary Division of Family Practice


The Recruitment and Retention Committee actively supports clinics, members, and KB communities. Our work focuses on being a regional information hub for clinics, members and candidates, and successfully connecting GPs with available positions.

2018/19 Highlights:

  • Three new GPs recruited and personally welcomed to the division
  • Connected with 21 new GPs interested in practising in Kootenay Boundary, including four almost ready to commit to practices
  • Focused on retention by completing 30+ in-person check-ins with new-to-practice members
  • Provided assistance to seven GP spouses to make community connections and seek employment
  • Generated over 20 matches through the Kootenay Boundary Division’s Locum Matching Initiative between clinics and GP Locums. Most of the matches came from locums who were new to Kootenay Boundary and a few are now considering long-term work
  • Supported three civic and community groups with recruitment readiness and capacity building
  • Welcomed all R1s, assisted R2s with various requests, and hosted third annual R&R family event with Kootenay Boundary Residents
