Rural and Remote

Welcome to the Rural and Remote Division of Family Practice

Our mission is supporting our members as they advocate for equitable rural health services, sustain a workforce, collaborate with partners, and design locally relevant programs to support the health of their communities. Established in 2012, the Rural and Remote Division of Family Practice supports more than 150 physicians and nurse practitioners in 13 chapters across the province.  Our Division works with four geographic Health Authorities and the First Nations Health Authority in more than 100 communities across the province, including more than 50 Indigenous communities. Our members serve approximately 140,000 patients over approximately 100,000 kilometers squared. 

Together, we advance member priorities locally, across communities, and provincially.  Have an interest in practicing in one of our communities? We'd love to meet you!
