As one of the first areas settled by the Hudson Bay Company, and home to the Canadian Pacific Naval Fleet, the Department of National Defense, and more than a few shipyards, Esquimalt combines historic charm with extensive and productive industry. In addition to being an economic force in the region, Esquimalt features a revitalized town centre, plenty of recreation facilities, and a diverse stock of homes. Boasting everything from condos, to townhomes, to single-family dwellings, all ranging from affordable to luxury, there’s a space for many types of neighbours within the community.

Located within walking and biking distance or a quick commute from downtown Victoria, Esquimalt is a true coastal community, surrounded by ocean and the Gorge inlet. It is home to lakes, parks, and neighborhood stores, and current housing and urban revitalization projects are adding even more value and charm to the area, every day.
