One of the key objectives of the Chamber Health Care Resource Council (CHCRC) is to recruit and retain family physicians.
In order to achieve this objective, the CHCRC hosts an annual Family Medicine Resident Weekend. Throughout this weekend, members of the Chamber, local dignitaries, and community organizations engage with young physicians-in-training and promote the community as a welcoming, attractive, leading edge centre of excellence with promising practice opportunities.
The weekend also provides business connections for the physicians’ partners to learn more about employment opportunities in their respective fields. Waterloo Region is home to a large, highly diversified economy that offers the ability for physicians’ spouses to find active and fulfilling careers as few other communities can.
Over the past twelve years this event has been instrumental in residents’ decisions to establish their family practices in the area.
