Our Advocacy

The CFPC advocates for family physicians by working with national health care organizations, government officials, and decision makers. Our advocacy priorities are shaped by what we hear from our members.
  • Physician burnout has almost doubled since pre-pandemic levels
    • Family physicians are feeling overworked, undervalued, and excluded from government decision making
    • Dedicated administrative support is needed to afford family doctors more time for the most meaningful aspect of their work: caring for patients
  • Workforce crisis
  • Access to care
    • Almost five million people do not have a regular health care provider
    • The CFPC has championed the need for a Primary Care Integration Fund to support rapid expansion of access to high-quality care
  • Inflation has increased the cost of overhead for family practices and family physicians are absorbing these higher costs out of billings

Our members’ concerns are important to us—please share your priorities and make your voice heard.

For provincial-level advocacy, please refer to our Chapters.
