17 communities were considered eligible, and of those nine have new doctors. Tumbler Ridge was also part of the program, but so far has not had luck in recruiting a new doctor. 

The new Chetwynd doctor will be working out of the Chetwynd Centre Medical Clinic, although their name and hometown have not yet been released. They will receive $50,000 when they begin working, and the remaining $50,000 after they work for a year. If they fail to live and practice in the community for a minimum of nine months a year for the three year commitment, the incentive will have to be repaid. 

In order to be eligible, doctors must have moved from outside the province or a non-rural community.
