Live in Nanaimo, Work in Vancouver. Less Than 30 Minutes From Your Office.
Found this one in Vancouver’s weekly free publication known as "The Straight". I have long thought that living in Nanaimo and commuting to Vancouver would be an option for some professionals, particularly as it’s only a 20 minute commute from downtown Nanaimo to downtown Vancouver by float plane. It’s a pricey way to do your commute but when you factor in that real estate prices in Nanaimo are roughly half what they are in Vancouver and that it’s safer and quiter here to boot, it seems like it might be a reasonable option for some. I had never met anyone who actually did it, but here is a profile of someone who does.
