As a small, seaside community with expansive waterfront views, summertime markets, and blooming gardens, Sidney is most certainly the jewel of the Saanich Inlet. Kindly dubbed the “Retirement Capital of Canada” Sidney blends quiet, slow-paced living with natural beauty and quaint community amenities. Its downtown core features charming retail shops, boutiques, and cafes, and the temperate climates make for easy days spent in town, at the beach, or at home.
Tucked on the Northeast end of the Saanich Peninsula, Sidney provides easy access to the Victoria International Airport, as well as the BC and Washington State Ferries—making transportation around the Island and beyond easy and convenient. It’s built on flat or slightly sloping land, with dwellings ranging from condominiums to townhomes, and single-family homes of all budgets.
