Contact your local division of family practice

There are 35 divisions of family practice around the province.
Please click here to find the division in your region and click through to their site.

The Provincial Office has teams of staff who support divisions. A central resource team includes staff who provide support to divisions in areas such as operational and strategic direction, learning and development, systems support and training, and communications.

Engagement Partners (EPs) are the key contact for the division support related to the Joint Collaborative Committees. The EPs work in partnership with Doctors of BC staff including the Primary Care Transformation Partners, the Regional Advisors and Advocates, and external teams in the Ministry of Health and health authorities. EPs support divisions with strategic capacity building, relationship management, and managing specific issues.

Primary Care Transformation Partners (PCTPs) support primary care transformation initiatives including local primary care network development as well as the regional and provincial initiatives and meetings such as interdivisional strategic tables, regional division leadership meetings, and regional primary care network planning.
