Since 2012, Collaborative Emergency Centres (CECs) were established and based on the Nova Scotia model. These CECs were staffed by a primary health care team during the day and by a nurse or a paramedic with physician oversight at night. Additionally, eight Primary Health Care Innovation Sites were established and based on community need. These sites included teams of family physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, dieticians, and pharmacists.
