Description complète du poste

Relocation Assistance will be provided for successful candidates that reside outside of the Texada Island.

ah yeh yeen (Texada Island)

At over 300 square kilometres, Texada Island, on the Sunshine Coast of BC, is the largest of the Gulf Islands. Affectionately known as “The Rock,” Texada Island has a wonderful, colourful history that includes stories of Wild West gold fever days along with natural outdoor attractions not found anywhere else.

An abundance of trails and old logging roads cover the island and lack of predators makes outdoor adventuring here even more attractive. There are 10 lakes suitable for kayaking or canoeing in addition to wonderful marine bays and coves ringing the island.

Texada Island is accessible by ferry with BC Ferries operating ferry service from Westview terminal in Powell River to Blubber Bay terminal on Texada with a 35 minute crossing time.
