We're planning a move there too, but don't know when firmly.
I think you would find Vancouver Island divine...many crunchy areas, especially the farther away from Victoria you go...any direction. That said, Victoria is great, but away from the urban areas lends itself to other island experiences...farms, quieter beaches, amazing forests!
You could hook up with La Leche League over there for sure, and if you are home learners or plan to , there are very established and thriving home learning networks there...one of our key reasons to want to move there!! Along with the gorgeous beaches, the forests, the farm vibe, the artists and artisans, the ability to eat local and simplify, easy access to the many varied Gulf Islands and all that they have to offer, friends and family already there, others I'd love to meet IRL (that I've met online), and, and, and...
You get the idea!
Hopefully some Islanders will add to this!
