Spend 18 months with us in Nelson BC, nestled within the stunning Selkirk Mountains!
Essentially a working holiday, we are looking for an experienced veterinarian to cover an 18-month maternity leave at the AAHA-Accredited Selkirk Veterinary Hospital (April 2020 to September 2021). Nelson is located on Kootenay Lake and offers superb powder skiing (Whitewater Ski Hill), hiking and water sports. Nelson was also voted "Canada's Best Small Arts Town" and has a vibrant cultural scene.
We practice fear free, high quality medicine in our four-veterinarian practice. We are fun and easy to get along with. Our solid support team is incredibly passionate and our clients will welcome you with open arms. We are happy to offer you a 3- or 4-day work week, including 1 in 4 weekends. On-call duties are shared with another practice in town which means you would only be responsible for 1 in 8 shifts. The downside? Once you come, you won’t want to leave!
