who we are
What is a primary care network?
A Primary Care Network (PCN) is a clinical network of local primary care service providers.
The Burnaby PCN brings together the Burnaby, BC community, its Primary Care Providers, and Fraser Health to collectively drive city-wide health and wellbeing.
Primary Care Providers (PCP) are healthcare professionals such as a Family Physician or a Nurse Practitioner, that help you manage your health. A long-term relationship with a PCP keeps you healthier; they can treat you when you are sick or help you access more advanced care when you need it.
We also work alongside community organizations and service agencies to connect Burnaby residents, not only with medical care, but with essential social supports as well.
Burnaby Community Fridge Program
Based on similar programs in Canada and around the world, the Burnaby Community Fridge Program will provide something many people in our community need most – food.
The Community Fridge Program provides this in a safe, low barrier and nonjudgmental way. It provides a place for people in our neighbourhoods to give and take, to reduce waste and feed their children better. It builds and enhances our food security in Burnaby.
Early Childhood Development Table
The Burnaby Early Childhood Development Community Table is an intersectoral committee that is comprised of key stake holders in the ECD community in Burnaby.
The ECD is made up of individuals in Burnaby who are interested in supporting families with children in the early years (birth to age 6). Members include representatives from provincial ministries, the municipality, health region, school district, and non-profit agencies. We share information and sets priorities for programs and services.
The activities of the Burnaby Early Childhood Development Community Table are supported by the Burnaby Primary Care Networks.
