DH and I are from Manitoba, and we're discussing the possibility of a move to BC. We'll be checking it out in June, and Campbell River is on our list of places to see.

What can you tell me about living in Campbell River?
What should we make a point of seeing when we're there?


You can check out my other threads, Fraser Valley and Courtnay/Comox - there's a little more info on what we're looking for. In terms of family friendly, natural/crunchy, job availability etc.

My dh grew up there 6-18 years old. I don't know TOO much about CR, but I know he wanted out as fast as he could

It's a big fishing town. It's cheap (he paid $400 for a 2 bedroom, 10 years ago)
It's not very crunchy, but a friend from highschool had a homebirth, but I think that was just my influence

75% Crunchy 25% Smooth
