The Advancing Rural Family Medicine: Canadian Collaborative Taskforce (Taskforce) is a joint initiative of the Society of Rural Physicians of Canada (SRPC) and the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC). The goal of this joint initiative is to enhance equitable access to health care and improve patient outcomes in rural and remote communities in Canada.
The Society of Rural Physicians of Canada (SRPC) and the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) formed the Rural Road Map Implementation Committee (RRMIC) in February 2018 to support the implementation of the Rural Road Map for Action (RRM). The RRMIC provides a forum for members to report and deliberate on how to advance the RRM in ways that can be scaled and shared locally, provincially, and at a pan-Canadian level.
The RRMIC will support the dissemination of success stories and discuss strategic opportunities to influence the broader uptake of the RRM.

We released an update in summer 2019 and published an article in Canadian Family Physician on our progress. In March 2020 RRMIC also began monitoring the impact COVID‐19 has had on our efforts.
