The BC Business magazine believes Sechelt and Nanaimo are two great cities to work in.

To that end, the magazine compiled a list of the best cities for work in BC for 2019 and both communities cracked the top 20 spots.

Sechelt’s Mayor Darnelda Siegers says she’s always known how great this community is but she’s surprised that others are starting to acknowledge it.

“I think this has a lot to do with the quality of people here,” said Siegers.

“There are opportunities here, we are located in a great place and the fact that it’s so close to Vancouver is a bonus.”

Sigers believes this is a great chance to attract people to relocate to Sechelt.

“We’re seaside, it’s relaxing, the entrepreneurial spirit is amazing and the arts and culture community is second to none.”

Sechelt was ranked number 12th and Nanaimo got the 15th ranking respectively.
