BC Cancer is one of the world's renowned cancer organizations.  At the Prince George Centre, our vision is to improve access to services and enhance the continuum of cancer care in Northern BC. Prince George is BC's northern capital with picturesque wilderness close at hand, offering a true outdoor person's paradise - plus year-round entertainment options, from symphony concerts and theatre to family fun activities. A great place to live!

 

Hear directly from one of our Medical Oncologists on the advantages of working and living in the North:

 

There are so many reasons why I love living and working in the north. There is such a great sense of community and teamwork both at the centre and in the city. There are so many opportunities for leisure, no matter your interests. I love our symphony orchestra and local craftsmen guilds. I love spending time on and off the trails in the vast woods in and around the city at all times of the year. Most of all, I love working with a fantastic team dedicated to delivering care across the north and making a difference every day.
