Celebrating World Family Doctor Day

Across Ontario, family physicians have been going above and beyond to provide care for their patients in the midst of a global pandemic. Whether finding ways to keep vital services open for society’s most vulnerable, or stepping into the media spotlight to share insights about the vaccination process, family doctors have been leading the way in keeping Ontarians safe and healthy. 

The OCFP is proud to celebrate World Family Doctor Day – to recognize the dedication of family physicians, to thank them for their efforts on behalf of patients and communities , and to highlight the many ways they have continued caring during this once-in-a-lifetime global health crisis.

Indeed, we have heard stories of heroic daily work and extraordinary efforts to safeguard those experiencing structural vulnerabilities. We are pleased to highlight a few of those stories in a collection of inspiring stories and photos from across the province and in this brief video tribute for World Family Doctor Day.

One Day. Many Stories.


We also want to continue the conversation. Share your own tributes and stories, and be sure to tag @OntarioCollege on Twitter and use the following hashtags:
