Why BC Cancer – Victoria?
Victoria is the capital city of British Columbia, and it’s located on the most southern tip of Vancouver Island, giving it the mildest year-round climate found in the province. Surrounded by water, the southern coast of the Island is a true nature’s playground: immediate access to water sports and boating, sandy beaches, coastline trails, and award-winning golf courses. Downtown Victoria is a blend of historical buildings and structures, funky shops and eateries, and entertainment venues, with nearby post-secondary institutions of University of Victoria and Royal Roads University. Travel north for skiing, northwest for surfing, south to the United States (by ferry), and east to the Victoria International Airport and BC Ferries terminal to Vancouver.
The centres are fast paced with daytime hours, and tasks vary throughout each shift, collaborating with colleagues throughout different departments. Unit Clerks are valued members of the BC Cancer Centre teams, working in areas such as Systemic Therapy Program, Radiation Therapy Program, Radiation/Medical Daycare Unit, Surgical Oncology, Ambulatory Clinic, Research Labs and Clinical Trials.

We recognize that our ability to provide the best care for our diverse patient populations relies on a rich diversity of skills, knowledge, background and experience, and value a safe, inclusive and welcoming environment.
Reconciliation is an ongoing process and a shared responsibility for all of us. The BC Governments’ unanimous passage of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act was a significant step forward in this journey—one that all health authorities are expected to support as we work in cooperation with Indigenous Peoples to establish a clear and sustainable path to lasting reconciliation. True reconciliation will take time and ongoing commitment to work with Indigenous Peoples as they move toward self-determination. Guiding these efforts Crown agencies must remain focused on creating opportunities that implement the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Mandate.
