Lasqueti Island – Secluded Paradise?

Lasqueti Island – Off Grid Living at our Backdoor

Panorama of Heath Islet off Lasqueti Island.

Imagine an island so secluded there’s no electricity, there are no paved roads and in many cases, no plumbing. That island – called Lasqueti Island – is home to 400 people and less than an hour away from Vancouver. Global TV’s 16×9 crew traveled there to see what it’s like to live off the grid.

Lasqueti Island is an island off the east coast of Vancouver Island in the Strait of Georgia, Powell River Regional District, British Columbia, Canada. A passenger-only ferry connects the island to the community of French Creek, near Parksville. The ferry makes two to three runs per day, five days per week, weather permitting.

The island had a population of 426 in the Canada 2011 Census, up 18% from the Canada 2006 Census,[2] and a land area of 73.57 km² (28.4 sq mi).
