The GMF and FMF-U des Aurores Boréales is a group of family physicians who work together and in close collaboration with other health and social services professionals to provide medical services on a private, public or hybrid basis. Students and trainees in various disciplines also provide care under supervision.
The “La Grande Séduction, c’est nous” project emerged from the willingness of different players in Abitibi-Ouest and the Abitibi-Témiscamingue CISSS to work together to address the labour shortage in the healthcare sector. The project’s mission is to submit proposals to attract, recruit, and permanently retain doctors, nurses, specialists and other health resources in Abitibi-Ouest. This initiative is a shining example of how the people in this region come together for the common good.
