North Peace

Welcome to the North Peace Division of Family Practice

We represent family physicians in Fort St. John and Hudson’s Hope, BC.

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.

The Division gives local physicians an opportunity to work collaboratively with the Northern Health Authority, the GPSC, and the Ministry of Health to identify health care needs in the local community and develop solutions to meet those needs.


Benefits of Membership

Being a member of a Division offers a number of potential benefits, including: 

  • shared efforts to provide full-spectrum primary care
  • greater impact on the organization of local and regional health services around a Division practice area
  • improved access to health authority and specialist services
  • enhanced professional collegiality and access to physician health and wellness programs
  • shared efforts for recruitment, retention and locums support from colleagues in caring for complex or unattached patients
  • reliable assistance with duties historically falling to call groups, such as scheduling and meeting organization
  • strong financial and practice support for information technology programs and pilot projects

Come for the job, stay for the community!

The North Peace Division has recently been hit hard by a loss of family physicians. The Division’s latest recruitment tool – a video posted on its homepage promoting the benefits of practicing in the North Peace – takes a light-hearted approach.
