The natural beauty – combined with a mild climate year-round, friendly towns and multiple recreating activities – is also turning many tourists into full time residents! Watch some video highlights here.
A recent article in the Calgary Herald highlights this trend in the Comox Valley:
“When people come into the recreation centre, we ask, ‘are you visiting or new to the area?’” says Leah Knutson, The Village of Cumberland’s manager of recreation. “Fifty per cent are visitors, and we say, ‘watch out, you are going to end up living here.’”
The Calgary Herald heard that many new Comox Valley residents were attracted to the area because of the active, outdoor lifestyle, including surfing, paddle boarding or fishing on the lake or ocean, rock climbing, or skiing at Mount Washington.

Zoning for New Residential Home Lots at The Ridge in South Courtenay Allows for In-Law Suites and Carriage Homes
Building a new home in the Comox Valley? Thinking of inviting in-laws, elderly parents, or adult children to live with you, but have privacy concerns? Would rental revenue help you pay off your mortgage sooner? If so, then you need to look at The Ridge in South Courtenay, a new subdivision on Vancouver Island. Flexible zoning at The Ridge gives buyers the versatility of adding a secondary suite, carriage home, or workshop.
Secondary Suites for In-Laws, Elderly Parents, or Adult Children
When you choose to build your new custom home at The Ridge, you have a fantastic opportunity to add a secondary suite, workshop, or hobby room. These secondary suites are perfect for embracing extended family, such as in-laws, elderly parents, or adult children, while preserving privacy for you and your tenants.
A carriage home is another option when you choose to build at The Ridge. Carriage homes are completely detached from the principal dwelling and can house a family member or tenant. They’re self-contained units with a bathroom, bedroom, and kitchen. Carriage homes can also be rented to earn additional income and pay off your mortgage sooner rather than later.
