Welcome message from site

Kelowna is located in the heart of the beautiful Okanagan valley. This means that we have the best weather in Canada! We are less than an hour's drive to Big White Ski resort if you enjoy snow. During the summer, you only have to walk across the street to dip in Okanagan Lake. It is definitely one of the most popular cities in the Okanagan!

Our Physio Department employs approximately 60 PTs.
