Family Physician - Emergency
Known as the “Rafting Capital of Canada,” the village of Lytton is located on a bench of land in the spectacular Fraser Canyon of southwestern British Columbia, with scenic views of the juncture of the Thompson and Fraser Rivers. Lytton’s Gold Rush history and First Nations culture are evident in its preserved buildings and archives, as well as through special events such as the Remembrance Day Pow Wow. The dry climate, relaxing lifestyle and affordable housing of the area attracts young families and retirees alike. In addition to rafting, recreational opportunities in the area include river or lake fishing, camping, swimming, hiking, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. A destination of magnificent scenery makes Lytton a wonderful playground for unique and exciting adventures and the perfect setting of tranquility to rest and recharge.
