Over 30 years ago, he and his wife visited Campbell River, while shopping for a community to settle down in. They had dinner that night at the much loved Gourmet by the Sea in Oyster Bay, and both concluded that this could be that place. Little did they know that they would end up living minutes from there and settling into the Oyster River community. After 28 years of working at Alder Medical, he has chosen to simplify his life and made the move to work full time at the Bridge Medical Clinic. He believes in building the community and broadening the medical services provided locally. He is proud to be a part of the Oyster River community, which is rich with wonderful, down to earth people. So whether it be on the favored Oyster River pub to pub trail, kayaking in the bay or mountain biking along the oyster river, he'll see you around.

Originally from the Peace River region in Northern Alberta, Dr. Lebeuf received his undergraduate training in Zoology from the University of Alberta. After globetrotting, he attained his degree in Medicine from the University of Saskatchewan, and thereafter completed his residency in Family Medicine at the University of Calgary. His early practice focused upon rural medicine, acting as a locum throughout isolated regions of Alberta, and subsequently practicing for several years in Nipawin, Saskatchewan. He relocated in 2001, and is proud to call Campbell River home along with his three children and wife. When not forced into yardwork, you may see him on the river, ocean, squash court, or with his guitar.
