Our Clinicians offer free Community Classes to help maintain your Mental Health and Wellness and there are many FREE mental health resources available to Bow Valley residents.

Good Food Box

The Bow Valley Good Food Box (GFB) is a monthly assortment of fresh produce that focuses on packing in as much nutritious food as it can, while sourcing local, seasonal, and organic when possible. The content of the Box varies each month based on seasonal availability and pricing. Please note there are no choices/replacement items.

The regular price of the Bow Valley Good Food Box is $30, taxes included. This is open to anyone in the Bow Valley. A partially subsidized option of $25 is offered to people with a lower-income* or who have been affected by COVID-19. These subsidies are provided by a grant from the Rotary Club of Canmore and the Bow Valley Christmas Spirit Campaign.

Treaty 7 Territory

The Bow Valley Primary Care Network is grateful to reside in Treaty 7 territory, and wishes to honour the past, present, and future generations of the Indigenous Peoples who have lived, cared for, and gathered on this land for generations.

We acknowledge the Treaty 7 Nations of the Îyârhe (Stoney) Nakoda (Bearspaw, Chiniki, Wesley), Blackfoot Confederacy (Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika), and Tsuut’ina of the Dene people. We acknowledge that this traditional territory is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Métis Homeland. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we currently reside on.

Please join the Bow Valley Primary Care Network in our commitment to continuing to learn, grow, connect and engage respectfully on these lands.
