Langford ranked ‘most livable’ community in Canada

Macleans Magazine compiled a list of 415 communities from coast to coast and ranked them on affordability, population growth, taxes, crime, weather, health, amenities, community and internet access. It’s no surprise to anyone who lives here, but Langford tops the list as British Columbia’s most livable communities. As the pandemic seems to wrap up and a return to normalcy begins, some changes are here to stay and remote work is one of them. For an ever-increasing segment of the population, the community you choose to call home is no longer dependent on where you work, making Langford condos a great place to start your search. Let’s dive in and highlight some things that make Langford so desirable.

Langford is a city of 40,000 people on the southern end of Vancouver Island boasting a temperate climate with mild temperatures for most of the year. The city has made considerable efforts to keep taxes low and housing affordable. Langford pioneered a project that had developers provide one affordable home for every ten homes built.

According to the local real estate board, the average Langford home increased in price by over 33% in the last year, but housing remains less expensive than Victoria and the surrounding areas with a good mix of single-family homes, townhomes and condos in Langford. As word about Langford spreads, the city has seen considerable growth with a population boom of 30 percent since 2016.
