A Growing Population at Home
With a growing population of 23,000, many of Langford’s residents believe that they enjoy the best of all worlds – charming neighbourhood developments in bucolic settings within easy driving distance of national and international retailers such as Costco and Starbucks. The crown jewel of the city’s many recreational opportunities is Goldstream Provincial Park, a 388-hectare nature reserve that is home to an old growth rain forest, a world-renowned salmon stream, 600-year-old fir trees, hundreds of bald eagles and an annual wildflower eruption that draws photographers from all corners of the Province.
Anyone considering a move to Langford is well advised to visit for a weekend and get a feel for the lifestyle and the wonderful neighborhoods that make up the City. For over ten years now, the City has sponsored its own Affordable Housing Program that was the winner of the 2008 Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s Housing Award. More recently, Langford enacted policies requiring new construction to be building-code ready for secondary suites – a move that was right on time for this booming trend in residential construction and lifestyle.
