When they moved from South Africa to Powell River, Henriette did family practice and maternity and Arend mainly worked in the Emergency Room. As they settled in and started a family, they felt fortunate to share the family practice to enable one of them to always be with the children. Powell River is perfect for them - there’s more here for them than in most small communities.
The size of Powell River is perfect. We have more here available than most communities have. Powell River is a beautiful place, it is a small town that has a lot to offer. And if you want to get away for a weekend, you can do that quite easily. I mean, I just get on the boat, and go fishing.
