Ridge Meadows Division of Family Practice

Red Carpet Program

What is the Red Carpet Program?

The Ridge Meadows Division of Family Practice physicians and community partners have collaborated to establish a Red Carpet Program to welcome prospective family physicians to the community.

Prospective physicians can expect to be welcomed with open arms by Division staff and GP colleagues who will pick you up from the airport, tour you through the hospital, organize welcome luncheons with community leaders, and wine and dine you in their own homes. 

Additionally, the following community partners and local businesses are committed to providing you with outstanding service and getting you and your family settled in the community as quickly as possible. Please give them a call today.

Meadowridge School is an International Baccalaureate Continuum World School, offering the Primary Years, Middle Years, and Diploma Programmes to students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12. Students at Meadowridge learn to “live well, with others and for others, in a just community,” participating in a curriculum that encourages knowledge, inquiry, and care. At Meadowridge, students are the centre of learning: they learn how to learn, how to draw connections between all subject groups, and how to apply those connections to the world around them.

 

A learning space unlike anywhere else; here, you’ll find a west-coast playground where students and teachers have close to 30 acres designed for experiential learning, practical exploration, physical activity, and mental wellness.
