Small town BC nestled between golden hills of ranchland where the rivers meet. Princeton is one of the last towns to keep some of the flavour of the old west. Only three hours from the lower mainland and little more from Vancouver, this is the sweet spot between getting away and staying connected. The surrounding area offers spectacular recreation opportunities. This could be the place you're looking to live and work.

Princeton and Area needs medical professionals and support staff. Please see our Jobs and Careers page for current listings with details. Come and join our team.
