The Ridge, One of the Best Neighbourhoods in Courtenay!

One of the best ways to find out how residents feel about their neighbourhood is to hear directly from them. The Ridge website features many testimonials from area residents including one from James and his family who recently relocated there. Here is an excerpt:

“Our family includes my wife, our children, ages 5 and 9 and my parents. We were living in the UK and my parents were living on the lower mainland, and together we were looking for a place to relocate to on Vancouver Island, away from the hustle and bustle of the larger cities. We chose a home in The Ridge and moved here in the summer of 2021. We are proud owners!”
