  2. In partnership with appropriate stakeholders, develop Physician Assistant funding model(s).
  3. Achieve recognized employment status for Physician Assistants in two (2) additional provinces.
  4. Initiate and advance dialogue with two (2) new provinces/territories each year regarding the introduction of Physician Assistant practice.
