Snow-capped mountains, fertile valleys, lush green rainforests, rolling vineyards, and one of the world’s most spectacular coastlines - this is British Columbia (BC), Canada.
BC is Canada’s most westerly province, bordered by: Canada’s Yukon and Northwest Territories and the US state of Alaska to the north; the province of Alberta to the east; and the US states of Washington and Idaho to the south.
The province’s magnificent Pacific Ocean coastline, with its many bays, islands, and inlets, stretches over 7,000 rugged kilometres.
BC is served by six health authorities: five regional and one province-wide. The Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) ensures effective and high-quality delivery of selected province-wide health care programs and services.
The regional health authorities - Interior Health, Northern Health, Providence Health, Vancouver Coastal Health, and Vancouver Island Health - provide all other services, some in coordination with the PHSA.
