City life does have its perks especially if you want to be in the heart of the hustle and bustle. However, if you find your priorities are changing, you might want to consider moving to Vancouver Island.
Why? Spectacular scenery and easy access to beaches, clean air, 12 months of recreation, and small-town vibes are just a few of the reasons. Vancouver Island is home to some of Canada’s best places to live, according to Maclean’s magazine’s new survey published in the summer of 2019.
Maclean’s researchers gathered data from 415 towns and cities across the country and compared them in the following categories: Wealth and economy, affordability, population growth, taxes, commute, crime, weather, access to health care, amenities and culture. Twelve communities profiled in the top 200 list are located on Vancouver Island.
Here are some of the reasons people take into consideration when moving to beautiful Vancouver Island:
