The Reg L. Perkin Award is presented each year to ten outstanding family physicians – one from each province – that are acknowledged as Canada’s Family Physicians of the Year. Each award recipient is nominated by their peers and colleagues and is recognized for exceptional professional achievements and contributions to their patients, family medicine teaching and research, and their respective communities.  They represent excellence in family medicine in Canada.  Formal award ceremonies will take place during the week of CFPC’s annual Family Medicine Forum in Quebec City and will be part of Family Doctor Week in Canada celebrations from November 10 – 15, 2014.
