Family Physician

Looking for work-life balance with one of the best remuneration in the country? Come work and play on the North Shore of Vancouver, British Columbia!

The North Shore has a population of 200,000 living across five stunning municipalities nestled beneath lushly forested mountains and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. You’ll find everything here, from rural to urban living, all next to the world-class city of Vancouver. 

We are home to the Lion's Gate Hospital, a 268-bed facility that offers a wide range of general and specialized services, as well as a trauma centre, intensive care unit, and seven operating rooms. Family doctors can choose to have privileges at Lion's Gate Hospital or can be confident that the hospitalists and experts on staff will provide excellent care to their patients.

We are fortunate to have over 40 specialties represented on the North Shore, with well-established collegial relationships. The maternity unit welcomes physicians who wish to perform their own prenatal care and/or deliveries. The North Shore is large enough to have a diverse range of health infrastructure and services, but small enough to be a close-knit community with plenty of opportunities to get to know your fellow physicians.

Our family physicians have a wide range of practice scope, and opportunities exist for teaching, long-term care, palliative care, excision, cosmetic, and other procedures. The new BC payment model provides excellent remuneration, and provincial plans include student loan forgiveness for those new to practice.

The North Shore is a place of balance and diversity. The sea keeps us warmer than most Canadian cities all year-round, but the three North Shore Mountains provide plenty of snow sports in the winter, and Whistler is only 90 minutes away. No matter where you live, the wilderness is truly at your doorstep, with hundreds of trails for biking or hiking and all the water sports you can imagine. The North Shore is ideal for families, with some of the best public and private schools in British Columbia, including French immersion.
