Who We Are

The Newfoundland and Labrador Chapter of the College of Family Physicians is a provincial, voluntary, not-for-profit organization whose mandate includes undergraduate, post-graduate education, the continuing professional development of family physicians and the maintenance of high standards of medical care and education in family practice.

The Newfoundland and Labrador Chapter is the voice of family medicine in Newfoundland and Labrador and represents more than 610 family physicians who provide patient care for remote, rural, suburban, urban and inner city communities throughout Newfoundland and Labrador.

The building and maintenance of high standards of practice, the continuing professional development of our members and improved access to high quality family medicine services for all residents of Newfoundland are at the heart of our organization.


The CFPC has created a list of resources to assist family physicians in providing health care for the Syrian refugees. This document will be updated as needed and will continue to be accessible using the same links. If you have any comments or suggestions, please contact us at debbierideout@cfpc.ca
