My Vancouver Island North

Living on Vancouver Island North is an opportunity wrapped in a lifestyle. Affordable homes, diverse careers, safe and strong communities, good schools, and endless outdoor activities are present. Vancouver Island North, administered by the Regional District of Mount Waddington, is an area of over two million hectares of rural coastal British Columbia. It is one of British Columbia’s most abundant and diverse natural resource regions, and presents a variety of geological features like deep ocean sounds, coastal inlets, mountains, glacier fields, karsts and caverns, temperate rainforests, rugged coastline, and long wide valleys.

Vancouver Island North – it’s better up here.

“Resource sector companies are well-known employers in the region, but there are many diverse jobs and opportunities in multiple fields that support a rich lifestyle.”

“Vancouver Island North offers a lifestyle alternative that is accessible and affordable. It is a beautiful and safe place to live and raise a family.”

“Vancouver Island North is comprised of many small communities that boast a lower cost of living than most urban centers and is known for strong, supportive communities.”

“For anyone concerned about what really makes life happen – food, shelter, water, safety, community… we have everything in such abundance. And it’s an hour flight from Vancouver.”

“Enjoy sustainable rural living and adventure that connects you with the land and ocean.”

“Real stories from people who have made Vancouver Island North their home.”

“There is a diverse and rich group of professionals involved in forestry, with many specializations. Logging and processing is just one aspect of forestry.”

“I love the outdoors, the remoteness, the summer, the diversity of activities you can do, and the proximity of the ocean and mountains.”
