A lifestyle that means business…a friendly, small-town ambience…an endless array of cultural, historical and recreational treasures…and just far enough from downtown Vancouver to enjoy the perfect balance between lively commerce and pastoral tranquility. This is life in Gibsons!

Considering a move to the Gibsons area?

Check out This is the Coast a website created specifically for people who are curious about what life on the Sunshine Coast is really like. (Spoiler alert: it’s awesome!)
