Funding for the new positions is provided through the ministry's Alternative Payments Program and will raise the number of APP-contracted physicians in the region to eight general practitioners.

"Supporting people living rural communities starts with delivering consistent access to the high-quality primary care people need to get and stay healthy," said Health Minister Adrian Dix. "These additional family doctors will make a real difference for people living in Fort St. James and the surrounding areas."
