Military Family Doctor Network

Calian Health, in partnership with Military Family Services (MFS), is pleased to offer the Calian Military Family Doctor Network (MFDN) as part of its corporate citizenship efforts. The goal of the program is to improve access to quality health care for families of serving Canadian Armed Forces members by expediting the process of obtaining a physician and reducing the number of military spouses and children without a family physician.

The program is provided at no cost to families or the Canadian Armed Forces and is now available in Calgary, Comox, Edmonton, Esquimalt, Gagetown, Halifax, Kingston, London and SW Ontario, Mainland BC, Moose Jaw, St. John’s, Toronto, Ottawa, Trenton and Winnipeg. There are a number of family physicians at Primacy clinics across these communities who are participating in the MFDN program.  Calian staff have also started to appeal to family physicians who are not practising at Primacy clinics to make room in their practices for military family members. Locations will be added regularly, so be sure to check back for a location near you.
