Community Network Managers

Click here for the boundaries for each Community.

Community Network Managers (CNMs) are focused on building Vancouver’s six Primary Care Networks (PCNs), providing support and addressing the needs of each unique patient population. CNMs communicate network information and connect and facilitate relationships between community-based family physicians, their clinical teams, healthcare professionals and organizations that offer services to patients in each Community.

Get in touch with your CNM – they are your first point of contact to:

  • Receive the latest news and updates on Primary Care Network development
  • Learn more about the healthcare resources available in your community
  • Connect with colleagues, clinics, and community partners in the network
  • Find resources that support Team Based Care
  • Access in-clinic workflow guidance. i.e., finances, patient panels, staff, clinic opening/closure, recruitment, etc.
