The funding received is through the Government of Canada’s Eastern Ontario Development Program, which is administered by the Kawartha Lakes Community Futures Development Corporation with the support of the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario, FedDev Ontario.
'The KLHCI Board of Directors is very pleased to again receive funding through this program. We are grateful to the KLCFDC Board of Directors and look forward to the positive outcomes expected,' says Andrew Veale, President.

Physician Recruitment Programs Expanding

Programs that will see expansion are, the Family Medicine Residents Weekends, an additional Rural Medicine Week, and a further opportunity to present at a medical university regarding medical training in CKL. Each of these programs is essential to the recruitment of family doctors to CKL by showcasing the practice opportunities available and the benefits of enjoying life in CKL.

Local Supports Provide Key Recruitment Assistance

KLHCI appreciates the support of the Victoria County Medical Society and BMO Harris Private Banking.
'The expansion of these programs would not be possible without the support of the medical community acting as hosts and preceptors', says Cindy Snider, KLHCI Recruitment and Retention Coordinator, adding 'The additional support being received from BMO Harris Private Banking is also greatly appreciated and the information they are able to provide to medical students and family medicine residents is found to be very beneficial.'

New Doctors Provide Local Economic Improvements

Ian Crockford, Board Chair of the KLCFDC, sees great benefits to the local economy when family doctors choose to practice in the CKL.
'The local economy is known to grow as every doctor who comes into a community provides a spin-off economic benefit of between $500,000 and $1,000,000 per year.' stated Crockford adding'Additional family doctors will positively impact the service capacity of the Ross Memorial Hospital. As more family doctors establish their practice in CKL, fewer citizens will need to travel outside CKL to receive primary health care.'
