VCH Careers is undergoing a small technical issue with our systems. We are aware of the issue, and are working diligently to fix it. Please check back later today and we should be back up and running. Thank you for being patient, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Sunshine Coast

The Sunshine Coast peninsula is one of B.C.’s most scenic regions. A backdrop of the majestic coastal mountain range frames a myriad of bike and cross-country skiing trails and miles of sandy beaches. The area is home to nearly 29,000 people concentrated around the larger town centres of Powell River, Sechelt, Gibsons Landing, and Pender Harbour. The peninsula attracts people looking for a friendly, more relaxed lifestyle. Whether you settle in a town centre or choose a rural setting, you’re always close to a wonderful array of social, cultural and recreational activities. This popular area within the Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region is accessible by a scenic 40-minute BC Ferries ride from Horseshoe Bay to Gibsons.

Thanks to one of the mildest climates in Canada, gardening, golfing and fishing are year-round activities in Powell River. Add in a thriving arts and cultural community, and spectacular West Coast scenery, and you’ll see why those who visit want to stay. The town is large enough to offer every amenity to its 20,000 inhabitants, but small enough to maintain a friendly community ambiance. Residents of Powell River enjoy world-class fishing, hiking, diving, canoeing, sailing, walking and kayaking.


VCH may pay up to a maximum of $5,000 CAD for new VCH employees who are traveling directly to their place of employment. In addition to relocation assistance, VCH will also work with you to secure available accommodations in preparation for your move.


Vancouver Coastal Health offers a comprehensive and competitive benefits package, which may vary depending on collective agreement and employment status.


If you qualify for the B.C. Loan Forgiveness Program, the Province of British Columbia will forgive the outstanding B.C. portion of your Canada-B.C. integrated student loan debt at a rate of up to a maximum of 20% per year for up to five years. If you complete five years of employment, all or a percentage of your B.C. student loan debt will be forgiven. While you are in the loan forgiveness program, the Province will also pay any outstanding interest that accumulates during each year you are registered in the program.
