What we do

Simply put, we’re a non-profit that supports our physician members to improve health access and equity in the community. We collaborate with health authorities, community health organizations, universities, non-profits, the City of Abbotsford, patient groups, community members, and the provincial government to bring programs and initiatives to the Abbotsford community.
