The James Bay Urgent and Primary Care Centre has information on how to become ‘attached to the clinic’ on the linked website, under the heading of “Request for attachment at the James Bay Urgent and Primary Care Centre”. There is currently an 11-12 month turnaround time to get attached.

When attached, the clinic is then your primary care provider. You do not have a ‘family doctor’; it is a team approach, like the whole clinic is your family doctor.

You can expect a 12+ month wait to get attached.
