Comox Valley

Welcome to the Comox Valley Division of Family Practice

The Comox Valley Division of Family Practice brings family doctors together to identify opportunities for improving the delivery of local health care. We are committed to achieving meaningful change that benefits patients, doctors, and our community as a whole.

Enhancing Perinatal Care in the Comox Valley

Through Shared Care’s Partners in Care initiative, the Comox Valley Division is collaborating with Perinatal Services BC on an extensive project to assess maternity care needs in our area and has created solutions to address some of the gaps.

Board of Director Opportunity

The Comox Valley Division supports and enables health care providers to optimize health care services in the Comox Valley. Together, we advance member priorities locally, and provincially. To ensure ongoing strong governance, we are diversifying the skill set on the Board which will be comprised of General Members, an Associate Member, and Non-Members.

Board members: 

  • commit to the Vision, Mission and Strategic Initiatives of the Division
  • lead the Division and its committees in establishing and monitoring annual goals
  • provide budget oversight
  • ensure regular two-way communication with members, partners and other key stakeholders
  • ensure sound risk management practices
  • review and sign annually the CVDFP Board Member Statement of Commitment

Board members attend board meetings in person (no more frequently than once a month), the Annual General Meeting, and other Division events throughout the year. A Directors' term is normally three years and the Board may determine that some or all vacant positions will have a term of less than three years in order to support effective succession planning. Directors may be elected for consecutive terms. The application form below provides additional details. 

If you are passionate about primary health care and have an interest in supporting this work at a governance level, please complete the application form and send it, along with your resume, to jbrydon@divisionsbc.ca. Candidates selected for an interview will have the opportunity to meet or speak with the Executive Director and a Board member. We look forward to hearing from you.
