As the voice of family medicine in Canada, the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) actively promotes family medicine and primary care to elected officials and decision makers.

Health care, and in particular primary care and family medicine, is dynamic. New technologies, policies, evidence, and new ways of practising medicine impact the way family doctors work. On behalf of family physicians, the CFPC works with elected officials and key federal decision-makers to ensure they are kept apprised of new developments in family medicine as well as the CFPC's position on current topics.

The CFPC's Health Policy and Government Relations Department monitors federal and provincial politics, policies, and legislation that affect primary care and family medicine. The CFPC collaborates with other medical and health care organizations to influence policy outcomes, specifically supporting CFPC Chapters in provincial matters.

Senior leaders from the CFPC meet regularly with Members of Parliament and members of the public service.
