"In ten years people will talk about the great deals they could have had in Nanaimo"
Nanaimo has a population of over 80,000 and another 60,000 in the local region. It is located in the centre of the east coast of Vancouver Island. Access is easy, we are linked to the mainland by two major BC Ferry terminals and the recently upgraded Nanaimo Airport. We also have regular harbour to harbour float planes. It can be faster to get to downtown Vancouver from Nanaimo than from Surrey. Plus only a little over an hour's drive to Victoria.
Nanaimo has an incredible setting, major shopping centres, a vibrant business community and exceptional quality of life. The weather is temperate with very little snow in the winter and lots of sun in the summer.
The city is a regional centre for technology, manufacturing, tourism, retail, healthcare, and government services. Nanaimo has one of the lowest unemployment rates in BC. Housing costs are still some of the lowest in the province.
The beautiful harbour is a hub of activity year-round with cruise ships, ocean going freighters, ferries, fishing boats, barges and pleasure craft. Scenic cruises, kayaking and fishing charters are only some of the activities available to experience our spectacular coast.
