The Oceanside Division of Family Practice represents family physicians in a
collection of 12 friendly and small communities, stretching from the
Parksville/Qualicum Beach areas along the sheltered Strait of Georgia on
Vancouver Island's eastern shore, to Nanoose Bay in the south and Deep
Bay in the North - we even encompass inland areas including Cathedral
Grove and Horne Lake, as well as the historic town of Coombs.
Parksville-Qualicum Beach is thoroughly equipped
with modern emergency service infrastructures, including our fabulous

2,047 hours of brilliant sunshine every year, it's one of the best places
in Canada to live, work and play!
