The Westshore Community Health Centre (WSCHC) is a program of Pacific Centre Family Services Association designed to bring low barrier, trauma-informed coordinated longitudinal care to the underserved populations of the Western Communities and their families.

The Family Physician (FP), as an integral member of the multidisciplinary Primary Care Team, will provide longitudinal primary care to individuals of all ages and their families, with a focus on those who experience barriers to health/health care due to the impact of inequity and the Social Determinants of Health (SDOH). Remuneration is via group service contract allowing for team-based, focused client centered care falling within scope of practice as established by the Health Professions Act and the British Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons.

The priority populations of the Westshore Community Centre are as follows: people with moderate to severe mental health conditions, substance use disorders, multiple chronic health conditions, those who identify as Indigenous, gender diverse/LGBTQ2S, seniors with social determinants of health barriers and those with diverse abilities.

Members of the multidisciplinary team at the Westshore CHC will include Family Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Community Health Workers, Social Workers, Registered Clinical Counsellors, an Elder in Residence and all the associated administrative support.

Community Information

The region immediately west of Victoria, the capital city of British Columbia, is known as the Western Communities, or the West Shore, and stretches westwards from Esquimalt Harbour to Rocky Point, along the rocky shoreline of Juan de Fuca Strait.

This part of southern Vancouver Island was opened for farming in the 1860s to provide fresh produce for the burgeoning population of gold miners and attendant settlers in the nearby Victoria region. As such, the natural ambience here remains pastoral, particularly in Metchosin.

Today, the Western Communities is a largely residential and rural area of Greater Victoria, offering several excellent parks, golf courses and many other sports facilities. Western Communities comprises the communities of Colwood, Metchosin and Langford. Sooke is often included under the Western Communities, as is the residential municipality of View Royal and Highlands.
