Welcome to the Vancouver Division of Family Practice

Since our beginning in 2010, the Vancouver Division has grown to become a leader and facilitator of primary care, working to create a collaborative healthcare system and an engaged physician community within Vancouver. Building off the rich and diverse ways that family doctors provide primary care in our community, the overarching goal of the Division is to support our physician members in the ongoing care of their patients, and to ensure that family doctors are a driving force in the primary care system changes underway in Vancouver.

As the largest provincial division, membership of more than 1,000 family doctors represents 92% of the practicing family doctors in Vancouver and 20% of physicians in the province.


As a member-driven organization we'd like to hear your ideas, suggestions or comments about the work of your Division.
