Thinking of relocating?

PREP Society is located in picturesque Powell River, British Columbia, with views of the Vancouver Island mountains across the Salish Sea.

Powell River sits 145 km northwest of Vancouver on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. The region is renowned for its affordable housing and spectacular scenery. It offers access to hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing, camping, and a recreation complex that sits next to a state-of-the-art Bike & Skate Park.

The community has a strong local food movement and a reputation for supporting and showcasing music, arts and culture. It also throws an impressive annual Blackberry Festival Street Party!

The community is served by a modern hospital, a community radio station, two BC Ferries terminals, an airport with flights that get you to Vancouver in 25 minutes, and a School District with innovative programs (including a digital film program).
