Linking over 3,000 military family members to primary care physicians across Canada.

Did you know?

  • There are 40,000 families of full-time Regular Force Canadian Armed Forces personnel

  • Canadian military families do not receive care through the military but access care through provincial healthcare programs
  • Military families face unique circumstances: frequent relocations, regular family absences due to training and/or deployment, and the increased risk for operational injury, illness, or death of the military member


Calian Health, in partnership with Military Family Services (MFS), is pleased to offer the Military Family Doctor Network (MFDN) as part of its corporate citizenship efforts. The goal of the program is to improve access to quality health care for families of serving Canadian Armed Forces members by expediting the process of obtaining a physician and reducing the number of military spouses and children without a family physician.

The program is provided at no cost to families of the Canadian Armed Forces and is now available in Calgary, Comox, Edmonton, Esquimalt, Gagetown, Halifax, Kingston, London and SW Ontario, Mainland BC, Moose Jaw, St. John’s, Toronto, Trenton and Winnipeg. There are a number of family physicians at Primacy clinics across these communities who are willing to accommodate military families. Calian staff also appeal to family physicians who are not practising at Primacy clinics to extend their practices to military family members.

As we continue to evolve MFDN, Calian has launched other programs in order to reach more families and provide quality care through the network of participating physicians:
