Campbell River and District Division of Family Practice

Practice Medicine

The Campbell River and District Division of Family Practice was formed in August 2013 and represents family practitioners throughout the Strathcona Region - Campbell River, Quadra Island, Cortes Island, Gold River, Oyster River and Sayward.

Campbell River is located at the 50th parallel on the east coast of Vancouver Island.  We are situated at the start of Discovery Passage, which is midpoint on the island and at the beginning of the famous Inside Passage.  The majestic mountains of Vancouver Island are at our back door and from our front door, you can see the Coastal Mountains on the mainland.  We are the third largest city on the island, with a population of more than 37,000.  The living and working regional population is approximately 60,000. 

Our city offers eco-adventures and internationally renowned salmon fishing; skiing at Mount Washington; golfing; fine dining; community festivals; parks; biking and walking trails for all ages and abilities.  Choosing Campbell River and District is choosing a life balanced between work and leisure - on a mountain top, at the ocean or anything in between.  It is a lifestyle choice!

The Campbell River and District Division of Family Practice works closely with Health Match BC.  Health Match BC is an excellent free health recruitment service for Canadian and internationally trained physicians looking for job opportunities within our region.
