Psychiatrist - General Adult


Cranbrook is a thriving city, cradled on a gentle plain by snow-capped mountains. Boasting the most sunshine in British Columbia, Cranbrook’s idyllic climate presents the perfect conditions for outdoor adventure in all four seasons. Hike or cycle the local trails, play a round of golf, or relax on one of the many lakes only minutes from the city. During winter, enjoy cross country and alpine skiing at nearby resorts, or snowmobiling on the almost limitless network of trails. Cranbrook offers unique shops, farmers markets, cafés, sports arenas, an aquatic centre, cinema as well as two theatres and heritage culture. With Cranbrook’s magnificent scenery, friendly people, and small town charm, it is considered by many the ideal place to raise a family and the ultimate location to live, work and play.​
