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 health care professionals, such as Family Physicians or Nurse Practitioners, who 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.

Digital Literacy Support

Digital literacy skills and access to devices are essential to overall health and well-being, especially during the pandemic when many vital primary care, wellness and social programs and services were offered in virtual settings. The Metrotown PCN, in partnership with Burnaby Public Library, Burnaby Neighbourhood House, and the City of Burnaby, led a campaign to promote digital literacy and to raise awareness of the many and varied technology resources available to Burnaby residents.
