Canada’s Best Place to Retire
Vancouver Island retirement living is laid back and casual, but there is plenty to see, enjoy and do on this beautiful island paradise.
If you are recently retired, you may be rethinking your current living arrangements. Perhaps for the first time in your life, you are free to live anywhere.
While many retirees entertain the idea of moving south to a warm, tropical climate, others appreciate a more secluded environment that won’t be a hotspot for spring breaks and family vacations.
Vancouver Island is an excellent place to retire, as it is internationally recognized for its kind-hearted people, stunning scenery and abundance of activities.
Travelers from all over the world come to visit the island, that spans over 60 miles in width and 3,000 miles in length.
The island offers incredible vistas, that consist of relaxing islands, rocky coastlines and lush green forests.

great restaurants and fun events.
The majority of people living on the island reside in the city of Victoria

If you enjoy a well-rounded lifestyle and don’t want to be limited to one climate, Vancouver Island retirement living will be a refreshing breath of air.
You can experience a calming day off the coast, a journey up a snow-capped peak or a walk through a rolling meadow filled with wildflowers.

The climate is always mild, with no sticky, humid summers or snow-filled winters (except in the central interior of the island).
Instead, the weather is consistent and predictable so that you can enjoy one wardrobe. You also won’t have to sit through countless news broadcasts on winter storm warnings or dangerously high heat indexes, that are most harsh on the elderly.
There will be no driveways to shovel or snow banks to hit, and you don’t have to worry about inclement weather interfering with an activity you have planned for the day.
You can’t appreciate all that Vancouver Island has to offer unless you visit yourself, which is why I recommend that you make arrangements, as soon as possible.
With senior retirement communities for Vancouver Island retirement living, and a variety of small towns near Victoria, you won’t have a problem finding your niche on the island.
