Physician Recruitment and Retention - The Province released its Physician Recruitment and Retention Action Team Report in 2014. Mayor Bob Taylor from the County of Colchester served as the UNSM representative. One of the report recommendations was the development of a best practice toolkit which could be used by all communities in their recruitment efforts. This recommendation is where municipal leaders can have a significant impact by building collaborative relationships, connecting new physicians with engaged community members, and fostering a welcoming environment.
