The South Island PCN, now in its third year of implementation, currently funds a variety NP positions across a variety of clinical settings.

Community Information

The Saanich Peninsula, the farm and food shopping basket of the South Island, extends north from Victoria to the Swartz Bay ferry terminal, a quick half-hour drive on the multi-lane Highway 17 (aka the Pat Bay Highway), or hit the backroads to see rolling farmland, vineyards, home studios, and exquisite valley views.

The District of North Saanich is home to the Victoria International Airport and ferry terminals in Swartz Bay (BC Ferries to Vancouver and the Gulf Islands) and Sidney (Washington State Ferry to Anacortes, WA.)

Brentwood Bay is perched at the edge of the kayak-friendly Saanich Inlet not far from The Butchart Gardens, a floral wonderland in a reclaimed limestone quarry that has welcomed visitors since 1904.

Not far from the airport and ferry terminal off the Pat Bay Highway, Sidney has evolved over the last few decades from a sleepy residential haven into a charming, pedestrian- and bike-friendly destination for shopping, dining, and leisurely strolls by the sea. Visit the kid-friendly Aquarium of the Salish Sea at the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre, catch a show at the Mary Winspear Centre, embark on a whale-watching expedition, or get active when exploring the town’s two artificial reefs on a diving adventure or by renting a kayak and paddling across to Sidney Spit in the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve.
