The Comox Valley is one of the top choices to retire to in British Columbia due to its temperate climate, amenities and boundless outdoor activities year-round. Additional attractions for retirees include the close proximity to the Comox Valley Airport (YQQ), Mount Washington and the recreational opportunities provided by golf courses, festivals, community groups and more.
Access to important services such as health care has been a significant draw for residents retiring to the Comox Valley and Courtenay. With an ageing population on Vancouver Island, health care is a major concern for residents and for those considering retiring to the Island. A new Comox Valley Hospital was recently built and opened in Courtenay and has 24-hour emergency care. There are family doctors and dentists available who are taking on new patients.
New home developments like The Ridge are able to offer additional benefits that appeal to many baby boomers, including zoning for secondary suites that could be suitable for in-laws, adult children or renters.
The Comox Valley, which includes Courtenay, Comox and several small towns, has an average winter temperature that remains above freezing. The area is known for a number of festivals, vibrant art and theatre scene, and local farms and food production.
The Comox Valley is one of the best places on Vancouver Island to enjoy a variety of hikes and trails and has easy access to oceans, lakes and rivers providing a multitude of choices for nature lovers, families and hikers. Stunning scenery surrounds the Comox Valley with the Comox Glacier majestically situated over the Beaufort Mountain Range to the west and the calm waters of the Georgia Straight to the east.
