Six (6) positions are to be elected for a 3-year term on the 14-member AFHTO board. The AFHTO by-law calls for balanced representation on the board to include the various forms of governance, the regions of the province, and the mix of the professions/individuals working within FHTs, NPLCs and other interprofessional models of primary care.

  • Family Physicians and Nurse Practitioners, especially individuals actively involved in OHT development and understanding of the broader health care system;  
  • Board members, especially community members in the position of Chair of the Board;
