The Sunshine Coast 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 Sunshine Coast 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.

STUDENT LOAN FORGIVENESS PROGRAM
PROVINCIAL (British Columbia)
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.
The Government of Canada offers Canada Student Loan Forgiveness to eligible family doctors, residents in family medicine, nurse practitioners, and nurses who work in under-served rural or remote communities that lack the primary health care they need. This change will help more Canadians get the health care they deserve.
Loan forgiveness can only be applied to outstanding Canada Student Loan balances. Canada Student Loans that have been converted to a line of credit, private loan, or an Ontario Medical Resident Loan, are not eligible for loan forgiveness.
Canada Student Loan forgiveness applies only to the federal portion of a student loan. It does not apply to the provincial or territorial portion of a student loan.
