Northern Health is seeking a family practitioner for a 0.5 FTE position in beautiful
Fraser Lake, BC. The Health Centre is comprised of a collegial team of health care
professionals, including family physicians, nurse practitioner and nursing staff. The
team provides Primary Care as well as some daytime ER care 1-2 times/week
depending on staffing levels.

preventative primary care. There is opportunity for outreach work in First Nation
communities as well as emergency shifts in the neighbouring community of
Vanderhoof. There are well established connections to the medical communities in
Vanderhoof (40 minutes) and Prince George (1 hr, 40 min) to facilitate surgical and
in hospital care for Fraser Lake and area patients. Locum coverage is through the
Rural GP Locum Program.

The community of Fraser Lake is known as the White Swan Capital of the World for
the hundreds of migrating trumpeter swans that winter there each November. With a
superb view of the surrounding lakes and rivers from the top of Mouse Mountain,
the area’s most prominent landmark, you are sure to be enchanted with the Village
of Fraser Lake. The main industries are mining and forestry. Fraser Lake has one
elementary school and one combined elementary/secondary school.

With over 170 lakes within a 50 mile radius, Fraser Lake is a playground of water
and natural wonderland. Besides fishing for trout or char in the Fraser and Francois
Lakes, or the Nautley or Stellako River, you can also enjoy:

• Golfing
• Hiking
• Camping
• Boating
• Climbing the 25-million-year-old lava beds of the extinct Red Rock Volcano
