“One in seven people in the Renfrew area do not have a family physician, so attracting new physicians to the area can be a matter of life and death,” said MP Gallant. “I commend all municipalities and partners involved by their proactive stance in pursuing the medical expertise needed in Renfrew—Nipissing–Pembroke.”
Renfrew and Area Health Services Village is a not-for-profit entity launched in 2010. It is comprised of four municipal partners: Admaston/Bromley Townships, Greater Madawaska Township, Horton Township, and the Town of Renfrew, as well as the Renfrew Industrial Commission, the Renfrew Victoria Hospital, and three members at large from the community.
Administered through the Renfrew County Community Futures Corporation, the Eastern Ontario Development Program is a Government of Canada initiative, which promotes economic development in Eastern Ontario, leading to a diversified and competitive regional economy.
