Position Summary

Do you have your Pharmacy Technician certificate and current registration with the College of Pharmacists of British Columbia? East Kootenay Regional Hospital is currently seeking casual Pharmacy Technicians.

Located in the southeastern corner of British Columbia, Cranbrook is the business capital of the East Kootenays and the largest city in the Rocky Mountain Region. Nestled on a gentle plain with scenic mountain vistas in the distance, it is considered by many to be an ideal location to raise a family or retire. Boasting more hours of sunshine than anywhere else in the province, its residents enjoy a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities including golf, hiking and skiing. For those who enjoy more urban pursuits, there are shops, boutiques and cafes, as well as an arts centre and heritage attractions. Cranbrook’s economy is driven primarily by mining, forestry, transportation, and tourism.

Exciting Opportunity;
Join our team as we build clinical pharmacy practice across Interior Health through innovation, progression, and dedication! At Interior Health we provide room-to-grow and the opportunity to make a significant, personal contribution to the lives of others.
