where abouts in BC? Lower mainland is too big an depressing with all the rain imo, the North is cold. Vancouver Island is nice if you're 65+, the Kootneys are nice if you like the outdoors and a small town concept (bunch of rednecks if you ask me, but I can't really talk). The only place to live is the Okanagan. Summers are 35+ winter rarely go below 0 and there are tons of golf courses and winery's, if you like that stuff. If you have a question about where you're mving let me know

Looking to move into the Quesnel area.

I have a friend who lives in Williams Lake, we might settle down in there is we can't find anything in Quesnel.

Personally I would never live there. But if you like being in the middle of nowhere with only 10,000 other people it's fine. It rarely gets above 20C in the summer and is usually in the minus' during the winter.

Beats living in 40C in summer here.

I don't mind Vernon, so that's probably another option.

Vernon is nice. Just up the lake from where I live. A little bit smaller but still has all the major stores act. A lot of service industry job as the whole Okanagan is a bit of a retirement oasis and a off season home for hockey's biggest egos.

BC is the most expensive place in Canada to live. Canada is the most expensive place in the world and Kelowna is the most expensive place in Canada, so Vernon/Kelowna is the most expensive place to live in Canada.

Vernon is a great place... and no Kelowna is not the most expensive place in Canada and Canada is not even close to the most expensive country.

Really now? A few months ago it was published in a Kelowna news paper. Kelowna is the most expensive place to live in Canada. Vancouver is in #2. They based it on the price of grocery's, gas (which is constantly 10cents more than the lower mainland), house prices, municipal tax rates (a friend on mines downtown business is 3000square feet and was 52,000 in taxes last year, no joke). I'm not sure if it was based on income.

Looked up the Canada part, was not as I thought.

Kelowna Daily Courier two months ago. Search the story on their website. It is based on average income compared to average grocery, service and gas prices as well as taxes and house prices.

When you base it on income you get the real most expensive city, as opposed to the nominal most expensive city. It's probably a better measure of the effect of expenses on the residents, which is more important to know as opposed to just straight numbers.

Damn, using the words nominal and real make me sound smart.

100$ is for a gallon on milk is cheap when you make 100 billion a year. $5 for a gallon of milk is very expensive when you make 1000$ a year.

The summer residents in Kelowna are typically quite wealthy while the year long residence don't make nearly as much as most of them work in services at 10-30 dollars an hour. For people that work here, especially small merchants, Kelowna is very expensive.

I lived in Kelowna for most of my life. I love the Okanagan Valley. You get all 4 seasons, and there are plenty of activities to do in the winter and summer. Absolutely love the hot summers, though, having Okanagan Lake right there. Best place in BC to live bar none.

Did my university in Victoria. Beautiful city, but kind of boring, and I can't deal with that much rain.
