The required qualifications and licenses are tracked to ensure that our workforce is in good standing with their applicable licensing bodies.

Calian Cares™: Military Family Doctor Network

Since 2016, Calian Health, in partnership with Military Family Services (MFS), has helped connect more than 4,000 military family members with primary care physicians through our flagship corporate social responsibility program, the Military Family Doctor Network (MFDN). The goal of the program is to improve access to high-quality healthcare 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 Southwestern Ontario, Mainland BC, Moose Jaw, St. John’s, Toronto, Trenton and Winnipeg. A number of family physicians at Primacy clinics located in Loblaw stores across these communities are participating in the MFDN program. Calian staff also appeal to family physicians who are not practising at Primacy clinics to extend their practices to military family members. Locations will be added regularly, so be sure to check back for a location near you.

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 family member.

Our success is rooted in our people.
