It might seem like a myth, but choosing life away from the city can really improve your quality of life, and when Sheena and Elisha moved to Powell River with their families, they traded in long commutes for family time and a community they love.
After an extensive search, Ian and his wife settled on Powell River. They realized what a great place it is for families. A few of the things they enjoy include: going to the recreation complex with their son for swimming lessons, music lessons at the Academy, and an abundance of outdoor activities – all within 5 minutes of driving. Quality of life and diversity of practice – it’s all here.
