Community Information
Galiano Island, located midway between Victoria and Vancouver, is accessible by ferry from either the Tsawwassen ferry terminal on the BC mainland or the Swartz Bay ferry terminal, adjacent to Victoria on Vancouver Island.  Surrounded by abundant natural beauty, and blessed with a warm climate, Galiano is the ideal location for outdoor enthusiasts.  Galiano also boasts a thriving artistic community, and many of the 1,300 Galiano Islanders are writers and craftspeople who love the relaxed and laid back lifestyle.

Galiano Island enjoys seven beautiful parks, and miles of old logging trails and country lanes.   Montague Harbour Marine Provincial Park is a favourite destination for boaters and kayakers.  Whether you enjoy beachcombing, bird watching, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, boating or fishing – Galiano is the ideal location to find the balance you’ve been looking for.
Your career can be a demanding one…so why not considering a location where the benefits are naturally distracting?
