We Are Seeking Staff Pharmacists in the Metro Vancouver Area

New pharmacy graduates are welcome, so don’t hesitate to apply!

A Highly Desirable Place to Live and Work:

If you live on the west coast, you probably already know how much of a hub Vancouver is. It’s a city that boasts a superb quality of living, transit links, mild weather, and access to nature that is the envy of the whole world.

You probably also know that it’s a very expensive city when it comes to housing and other costs of living. This last August, the Vancouver Courier reported that the average rent for a one bedroom apartment is $2,208 per month.

But what if we told you that you could secure employment that would enable you to live in this highly-competitive city? If you are a pharmacist who is willing to work relief shifts to build the strength of your resume, we have a great opportunity for you.
