Where Business Meets Play

As a service centre for the Sunshine Coast population of over 30,000, Sechelt is the hub for Coast shoppers and entrepreneurs. With a business-friendly attitude, a supportive municipal council and low business taxes, the District of Sechelt works with developers and business owners to streamline processes and pave the way to success. Gaps in business open advantageous space for new business opportunities. Contributing to the community and buying local are highly valued by residents, creating an environment for new businesses to thrive.

Sechelt is also a place where business owners and their staff want to live. Whether you are young and single, a family with children or getting set to retire, Sechelt has a lifestyle for you. A small seaside community filled with locals and visitors and nestled in a quiet forested area just outside a major city—need we say more?

Sechelt is close enough to Vancouver that it’s easy to head to the city for lunch, a meeting or to attend a concert, but it is far enough away to feel like a vacation destination with no hustle and bustle.

Not an Island

Famous for its relaxed, seaside vibe, “The Coast”, as locals call it, is renowned for its tremendous outdoor recreation opportunities. The Sunshine Coast boasts hundreds of kilometers of well-maintained hiking and mountain biking trails that are used in all four seasons and endless water recreation, including kayaking, paddle boarding and diving.

Sechelt is the largest population centre in the heart of the Sunshine Coast with a population of 10,200 people. Nestled between the Salish Sea and Sechelt Inlet, Sechelt is a short drive and ferry ride (or 20-minute float plane flight) from Vancouver. But don’t be fooled—the Sunshine Coast is a peninsula, not an island.

Imagine a lifestyle where you are only a short walk or bike ride to work, you go home for lunch and you are home again in time to paint, play in the band, go for a hike and watch the sun set over the ocean—all before dinner.

That is what Sechelt offers you. We really do have it all.
