Start from scratch

We are pleased to offer Direct Billing for most major extended health insurance companies.

No referral is required, unless specified by your extended health insurance. We are unable to direct-bill MSP at this time. 

We do NOT have a contract with WorkSafe BC (WSBC) and as such, cannot see WSBC clients.

ICBC clients are welcome; we can direct-bill those with MVA dates after April 1, 2019.





At Active Living Physiotherapy all appointments are one-on-one, hands-on.

This means your entire appointment is spent with your physiotherapist. No machines and factory-style physio here! We care.


Your initial assessment will be one hour, which will allow your physiotherapist time to accurately assess and explain your condition, teach you about it, provide a treatment plan, and communicate with other health care practitioners so they’re all on the same page!


We stay up-to-date with current physiotherapy research and have educational in-services every four weeks.

Physios continue to take post-graduate courses in a variety of topics to stay up-to-date on their area of practice.

DURING COVID-19: We are OPEN! - For the safety of our clients and staff, to do our part in 'flattening the curve', and based the recommendations of the Physiotherapy governing bodies, we have temporarily closed our "brick and mortar" clinic, but have opened a "virtual clinic".  Our doors are still open! We are happy to continue to help you keep "active living" during these challenging times.  We have both phone and video call (called "telerehab") physiotherapy appointments available. You can expect the same safe, quality care that you would get during an in-person visit, and these appointments are appropriate when in-person appointments are not possible. And, these are covered by some extended health insurance companies! We are also offering Ergonomic Assessments via video telerehab to help you make sure your home office space is set up correctly.

During this time of financial insecurity,if you feel you need Physiotherapy but cannot afford the fee, please contact the clinic directly. 
Call us, or book online - you'll be surprised what we can do with technology!  Our office hours during this time are M-F 9-3pm.  For more information on telerehab click HERE.  To view a sample of a video appointment, click HERE. Thank you for your continued support.
