The District of Metchosin is located approximately 35 kilometres southwest of Victoria, and is home to nearly 5000. Metchosin is an area of acreages and larger land parcels, including ocean-side, view lots, and farms. The community is dedicated to environmental preservation, and is constantly evolving strategies to protect and enhance the natural landscape.
Metchosin’s Green and Blue Spaces Strategy Committee encourage an ongoing community forum mandated to salvage, restore, preserve, and cultivate the area beaches, parks, water, and land. Metchosin’s unique character is reflected in the collective eco-consciousness of area residents, and is expressed effectively in reclamation and clean-up campaigns.
Metchosin’s wildlife thrives in the congenial atmosphere, and owls and other land and sea birds are widely represented. Bird, wildlife, and botanical enthusiasts gather in organised and spontaneous excursions to enjoy the diversity of species ranging in Metchosin’s expansive wilderness.
Metchosin’s community planning includes provisions for home-based businesses, and land with multiple-use zoning. The District’s approach to development is community-centred as well as environmentally oriented, and proposals are accepted for expanding the nature and range of businesses located in the community.
Metchosin is a unique, quiet community with a fervent commitment to positive growth and environmental action. Metchosin welcomes visitors and encourages settlement, providing oceanfront homes and an excellent, commercially self-sufficient centre for families, retirees, and those seeking rustic comfort.
