A very common misconception is that businesses can only thrive in the big city, surrounded by a concrete jungle, confined to stark, fluorescent-lit rooms. If there is one city that clearly defies this philosophy, it’s Nanaimo. Indeed, if anything, Nanaimo epitomizes the province’s tagline: Super, Natural British Columbia.
Dubbed “Harbour City,” Nanaimo is ideally located along the east coast of Vancouver Island. A short and convenient ferry ride takes you back to Vancouver the mainland. A leisurely drive south takes you to the province’s capital city of Victoria. A scenic ride to the west takes you through lush forests and to the breathtaking town of Tofino. A ten minute drive south along the Trans-Canada Highway takes you to Petroglyph Provincial Park and 1,000-year-old rock carvings. Respect the past and embrace the future.
In Nanaimo, you’re surrounded by nature, yet all the modern amenities of a thriving urban centre are right at your doorstep. Nanaimo epitomizes the philosophy of life-work balance, perfect for entrepreneurs and small business owners.
Take an afternoon to go kayaking on the water or hiking through the woods. Check out the charmingly quirky Great International World Championship Bathtub Race in the summer. Return to the Nanaimo’s revitalized downtown core to discover inspiring art galleries, a new museum, unique dining options, and a wealth of shopping opportunities. Watch seaplanes depart from the harbour, before heading back to the office to grow your own business.
The Network Hub’s coworking space in Nanaimo is located right in the heart of the action in the city’s downtown core. Find just about anything you’d need along Wesley or Fitzwilliam Street, including cozy pubs and great eats. They’re just outside the door of the Network Hub. The increasingly popular Vancouver Island Conference Centre is only two blocks away too, so you can always return to the coworking space between sessions to get away from the trade show or convention crowd.
With its convenient and accessible location, mild climate, and bustling small business community, Nanaimo is a perfect year-round destination for life and work.
