Innovation teams

The 12 CBPHC Innovation teams are the most significant investment of the CBPHC Signature Initiative. The teams are located throughout Canada and include a range of cross-jurisdictional programs designed to improve access to CBPHC for vulnerable populations and chronic disease prevention and management.

The 12 teams are focused on a variety of intersecting and complementary primary health care issues. There are teams that address general primary care transformation challenges, the management of specific conditions within the context of primary care, and primary care transformation within Indigenous communities.
