Physician Recruitment

Mayor Lori Ackermann believes the sooner you can bring doctors on board and have them establish roots, the faster they’ll become members of the community. 

“Although it’s not our responsibility to actually bring them here, to recruit them, they’re being brought to a community, they’re being retained to a community, so we must build a good community and build some positives for them to stay,'” says Ackermann. 

She says council has approached Northern Health offering to help.

In Alberta, many communities and counties are actually involved in the hiring process.
