New Brunswick Representative
Fraser Mackay - Email
Saint John, New Brunswick
As a physician and before that a paramedic, he has worked in many remote sites and communities, and has been involved in education and management at various levels. From Halifax to Victoria, Toronto to Behchoko, Cambridge UK to Castaway Cay Bahamas, he has developed a broad perspective on the variations in healthcare access and equity according to geography, politics, and population. Some aspects of rural and remote life require accepting the realities of healthcare access; that said, the marriage of modern technologies with evidence-based clinical skills makes rural medicine one of the most challenging and enjoyable modes of practice. As the profession continues to push towards National Licensure, Fraser hopes more physicians will choose to explore all Canada has to offer and embrace the challenge of rural and remote work.
Located on the east coast, the province of New Brunswick, Canada’s only officially bilingual province offers a distinct way of life and exciting career opportunities.

Provincial and Territorial Representatives are volunteers elected by members as per the by-laws at the annual meeting. Representatives from across the country help to make the work of the Society of Rural Physicians happen. They are your contacts. Please feel free to share information, questions and concerns with them for discussion at quarterly meetings. The outcome will come back to you via the SRPC Newsletter, emails, the RuralMed mailing list, or directly via your representative. We can always use more human resources and ideas. If you have something to contribute, let us know!
