The Sunshine Coast’s belt of paradise on the Pacific Ocean offers those with a love for the great outdoors the chance to live the West Coast lifestyle, while simultaneously enjoying quick access to mainland British Columbia. It’s only a 40-minute ferry ride to Vancouver’s Horseshoe Bay terminal! Spend time hiking with family and friends, mountain biking, diving, kayaking, or traversing the world class provincial park sites. The region boasts approximately 844 identified trails covering over 1570 kilometers, complete with soaring eagles, deer, and bears. A truly Canadian experience, without the heavy snow! Where else in Canada could you spend a Saturday morning kayaking, the afternoon enjoying amenities in a city as renowned as Vancouver, and the evening cheering on the NHL’s Canucks at ice level? The Sunshine Coast is calling… to all qualified Veterinary Technicians interested in this beautiful balance of work and play.
