On March 9, 2013, one of Sooke’s family doctors, Dr. Anton Rabien, received a Top 20 Under 40 award.

This first annual Top 20 Under 40 was to recognize business and community leaders on Vancouver Island under the age of 40 who are considered to be ahead of our time. According to the 20under40.ca website, “’This means they’ve progressed up the ranks of their company, industry or organization or have built their own company and demonstrated professional success and responsibility at a relatively young age.”

The awards were determined by five judges, one from each of the five regions on Vancouver Island (Victoria, Cowichan, Nanaimo, Port Alberni/West and Comox/North). The ceremonies were held at the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtney.

Rabien was one of over 100 people nominated, and on March 9th he received his award.

Rabien’s passion for medicine took him to various cities and towns in B.C., the Territories and New Zealand. After his return home to Sooke and starting a family medicine practice he spent the last six years, with his local colleagues, to successfully lobby VIHA to select Sooke as an Integrated Health Network and provide specialist care to the patients

Additionally, Rabien is involved in the provision of community-based palliative care in the region, works as a clinical assistant professor at UBC, and volunteers as a mentor with the Island Medical Program.

And as if that weren’t enough to keep him busy, Rabien is also one of three professionals who created B.C. Coastal Homes, whose mandate is to convert the 40-acre Montague estate into a community built with minimal environmental impact.

Rabien’s medical practice is located at the West Coast Family Medical Clinic, at 6660 Sooke Rd. in the Evergreen Mall.
