“I’m usually out of the clinic by about 5:00… now I get home to have dinner with my family. We have a lake very close by, and the kids love to go to the beach. I can’t see us being anywhere else. We’re here to stay.”

Dr. Sue Hopkins

“Health Match BC was excellent… even after you’re licensed to practise they don’t leave you. They still help you with immigration and getting permanent residence. I would say that your only regret might be not starting early, not doing it soon.”
