ABOUT US

Northern Therapy Services was founded in 2017 to address the need for consistent and culturally specific rehabilitative services primarily to the communities of Northern BC. The founders, Caitlyn DeBruyne (Occupational Therapist) and Jocelyn Chandler (Physiotherapist), have called Northern British Columbia home and have been providing service to the region since 2011 and are passionate about reaching rural and remote communities with an outreach model. Northern Therapy Services specializes in providing culturally relevant care in Indigenous communities and believes in a comprehensive community approach when providing service. Our multi-disciplinary team of Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech & Language Pathologists, a Registered Psychologist, an Accessibility Consultant and Rehabilitative Assistants provide services to children, adults and elders throughout Northern British Columbia and Vancouver Island. We are proud to be a Northern British Columbia owned and operated company that strives to increase health outcomes in our region and hire within our local communities.
