Welcome to the Nanaimo Division

The Nanaimo Division of Family Practice, incorporated on November 22, 2011, represents family physicians, locums, hospitalists, emergency physicians, nurse practitioners and family medicine residents in Nanaimo and on Gabriola Island.

There is no obligation or cost to join. Division funding from the General Practice Services Committee (GPSC) is established on a per-member basis. This funding provides support to physicians for their time on working groups and provides infrastructure funds for member-identified priorities and Division events, e.g., continuing medical education events.

The Nanaimo Division of Family Practice in partnership with the Nanaimo Medical Staff Engagement Society, is implementing Pathways in Nanaimo.  It is a web-based database that all Physicians, Nurse Practitioners and MOAs can use to improve referrals to Specialists and Specialty Clinics.  Pathways was developed by physicians for physicians and will be in place in 95% of BC communities by the end of this year.

Further inquires may be directed to Janice Schmidt, Nanaimo Pathways Administrator.


There are 14 Family Physicians in Nanaimo who provide comprehensive maternity care. If you have a Family Doctor, they can refer you to the group, or if you don’t have a Family Doctor, you can self refer and the doctor will take you and your baby on as patients permanently.
