Experience why the world loves Canada! Affordability, adventure, friendly people, universal healthcare, inclusive culture, and beautiful scenery.
Are you passionate about hiking, kayaking, fishing, or exploring the Great Canadian Outdoors? Are you looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the larger cities, and ditch the crowds, traffic, and daily commute?
Escape to Prince Rupert, a quaint coastal community of over 12,000 people on the northwest coast of British Columbia. If you’re ready for the experience of a lifetime in a picturesque Canadian location, but don't want to shovel snow out of your driveway… then you can’t afford to miss this awesome opportunity!
Pacific Coast Veterinary Hospital in Prince Rupert is seeking a full-time Veterinarian to work alongside our 4 well-trained RVTs. New graduates searching for a great way to pay off student debt while gaining experience with a wide variety of cases are welcome, and we would also like to invite experienced Veterinarians interested in assuming Medical Director responsibilities. For the right individual, we would absolutely consider the possibility of buy-in too. Either way, it’s incredibly important to us that you have a voice and take an active role in the evolution of our hospital, because it will be your hospital too.
Prince Rupert is a rural city centre populated by people with a sense of adventure and a love for the Great Canadian Outdoors. We are a northern port city, but it isn’t cold here. Our coastal climate is celebrated by outdoor enthusiasts that enjoy world-class hiking, kayaking, and mountain biking - even in the winter months! Prince Rupert is a hub for the region’s natural and cultural heritage, and a gateway to spectacular wilderness areas, such as the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Sanctuary bear habitat. It is a close-knit community and a sanctuary for nature lovers fighting back against traffic, pollution, and escalating property prices in beautiful British Columbia.
