Dr. Ian Ricketson

After an extensive search, Ian and his wife settled on Powell River. They realized what a great place it is for families. A few of the things they enjoy include: going to the recreation complex with their son for swimming lessons, music lessons at the Academy, and an abundance of outdoor activities – all within 5 minutes of driving. Quality of life and diversity of practice – it’s all here.


What really attracted us to Powell River was,  how great a place was this for families.

WI haven’t found anywhere else in B.C. that has the same diversity in medical practice, and the same, quality of life.
