Looking for the best place to live in Canada? Look to Victoria and Vancouver in beautiful British Columbia. It is a bit of an open secret, but the climate here is the best in Canada. Temperate summers and mild winters make for comfortable living all year long.
It’s not just the weather that makes Victoria and Vancouver Island great. It’s the people and the lifestyle. Theatres, arts and crafts, festivals, history, restaurants, music, and sporting events abound. Victoria is our nations gem on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. Brilliant blue waters surround this island paradise and our streets are lined with Garry Oaks and Chestnut trees. Flowering Cherry and Apples Trees explode into colorful flowers and confetti in spring time. Crocuses, Daffodils and Snowdrops fill the parks in February. But Victoria is more than that. It is the gateway to the rest of Vancouver Island with its towering mountains, rugged coast lines, and abundant wildlife. The Salish Sea offers warm sandy beaches and the nearby Gulf Islands stretch from Saltspring to Sointula.
The economic opportunities are just as great in here. Victoria is the seat of the provincial government and home to the Canadian Navy Pacific Fleet. There is tourism and hospitality. The University of Victoria, Royal Roads, and the Pearson College of the Pacific are all here. High tech and manufacturing have an important home here too. Victoria is positioned well for international trade, and we are only minutes away from Vancouver, a gateway to the Pacific Rim and the rest of the world.
When work is done, there is unending recreation. Boating, biking, snowshoeing, hiking, walking, surfing, kayaking, cross country skiing, tennis, and golf, and quite often many of them on the same day. Don’t believe me? You will. Vancouver Island offers snow to surf with easy living in between.
The lifestyle you want is here and we are here to help find your perfect home, Andrew and Melody Mosley, your Vancouver Island Realtors.
