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 an engaged physician community and a collaborative healthcare system in Vancouver. We are a not-for-profit society funded by the Government of BC and Doctors of BC, and work in partnership with the BC Ministry of Health, Vancouver Coastal Health, Providence Health Care, and other community organizations. Building off the rich and diverse ways that family doctors provide primary care, the overarching goal of the Vancouver Division is to support our physician members and advocate that they get the necessary tools to look after their patients. We strive to ensure that family doctors remain central to system change in this community.
As the largest provincial division, our membership of more than 1,200 family doctors represents 90% of the practicing family doctors in Vancouver and 18% in the province.
