The new location offers much better access for individuals with disabilities requiring wheelchair and scooter use.

Kathy Remple and Katie Waterfield are the customer service representatives who will assist you.

For more than 136 years, Service BC’s government agents have been serving Princeton and area residents.

After 84 years of service on Vermilion Avenue, as of Monday, Oct. 29, the Service BC Centre has officially re-opened at its new location, #10 – 136 Tapton Avenue.

The new location offers much better access for individuals with disabilities requiring wheelchair and scooter use. It is larger, brighter and also provides room for B.C. Parks and the Ministry of Forests to work out of when they are in the area. Conservation Officer, Ann Marie Gorecki and National Resource Officer, Ray Senger are working out of the new location as well.

The Service BC Centre offers all the same services as it did in its prior location such as, licensing services for hunting, fishing and marriage, Birth Certificates, BC Medical applications, property tax services, passport information and more.

As well as the core frontline services, the new location offers access to programs and information on behalf of the Ministry of Social Development such as; employment programs, temporary assistance and disability assistance. A front line business registration station that streamlines provincial and federal information while you register is available to use as well.

Kathy Remple and Katie Waterfield, are the customer service representatives that will continue to provide you with the information and assistance you may need.
