Accountant Position Available in Williams Lake BC

This dynamic and growing organization is located in the natural and beautiful community of Williams Lake, BC.
Williams Lake retains that magical ‘western frontier character’, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Its central location, at the junction of Highway 97 to the north and the Bella Coola highway (Hwy 20), makes it an excellent place from which to foray into the surrounding regions.
Steeped in history and culture, Williams Lake offers great dining, modern-day amenities and is also considered one of BCs top outdoor playgrounds. The town and surrounding areas offer so many options for the outdoor enthusiast: hiking, fishing, river rafting, canoeing, kayaking, golf, downhill and cross-country skiing, wild-life viewing, dog sledding, biking, ranching, rodeos and more.
From Williams Lake you can explore the cedar forests of the gold rush country to the east, travel west to the Pacific Ocean over the vast expanses of the Chilcotin Plateau, venture north to Prince George and beyond to Alaska, or head south to the Okanagan and the Lower Mainland.
