The Powell River Division of Family Practice Welcomes You


Tucked within a lush temperate rainforest on the upper Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, our little city is called home to people from around the globe. Expansive outdoor playgrounds of mountain, sea, and sky offer endless exploration for adventure seekers, sports enthusiasts, and families. 

The Powell River Division of Family Practice is a community-based group of family physicians and facilitators working together to improve practice, foster an open discussion for current topics, and achieve proactive change in common health care goals. We work collaboratively with our community and health care partners to enhance local patient care, increase awareness for shifts in the medical community and improve professional satisfaction for physicians.

The Divisions of Family Practice initiative is funded by the General Practice Service Committee (GPSC), one of four joint committees that represent a partnership of the provincial government and Doctors of BC.

The Powell River Division of Family Practice (PRDoFP) was founded on December 24, 2010. In 2015, the membership was expanded to physician specialists and nurse practitioners.
