Alberta RCMP confirmed the 52-year-old doctor was arrested in Kelowna Tuesday, stemming from charges in an investigation by Grande Prairie RCMP. Curtis Peters said tonight, June 8.

The Grande Prairie RCMP Special Investigative Unit initiated the investigation into the allegations, with assistance from the Grande Prairie Caribou Child and Youth Centre.

The chief medical officer for British Columbia's Interior Health has been arrested and charged with sexual assault and sexual interference against a child, according to RCMP.

He also couldn't offer any information on when the alleged offence occurred.

Before moving to the Okanagan in the summer of 2020, de Villiers spent 16 years as the lead medical officer for the Alberta Health Services north zone. He originally came to Canada from South Africa.

The Interior Health Authority said a temporary chief medical officer will be appointed on Wednesday, and that Dr. Sue Pollock will assume the role starting next week.
