Live Where You Play

Imagine taking in beautiful coastal ocean and mountain views while hiking or biking after work or on weekends, and spending free time fishing, camping or paddling in a region known for its stunning natural beauty, as well as diverse plants and wildlife. J.E. Anderson & Associates has four offices on Vancouver Island where professionalism, comradery and team work are part of the work culture, and staff enjoy the West Coast lifestyle that naturally flows from living by the ocean.

As the capital of British Columbia, Victoria and region (pop. ~367,770) features a great urban centre set on the ocean, with lakes, rivers and hiking trails nearby. A short ferry ride or seaplane trip takes one to Vancouver, or drive an hour or more up-Island for fantastic fishing and camping opportunities.

Nanaimo (pop. ~158,767) is a medium-sized city, also a short trip via water or air to Vancouver (or by car to Victoria), and has a wide-range of community, recreation and shopping facilities. It doesn’t take long to get out of the city to indulge in your favourite outdoor activities.

Featuring sandy beaches, Parksville (pop. ~12,500) is a small oceanside town centrally located close to ample shopping opportunities at the north end of Nanaimo and lots of natural parks featuring hiking and biking trails. It’s also a favourite tourist destination in the summer for those wanting to get out of the city and play.
