Fun Fact! In 2020 Langford ranked as the fastest growing community in B.C. and also took first place as most livable place in Canada (report by RATESDOTCA). Langford to me, feels like the hub for big box shopping, recreational facilities, schools and really anything you need! Langford services a lot of surrounding communities and also has a plethora of natural parks and trails. My favourite place to visit with my dogs is Theits Lake, there is public swimming making a great place to bring your floatie, a beautiful nature loop and some pretty stunning sights.
The real estate market is strong here because of the proximity to amenities, schools and it only being a quick jaunt to Victoria. It is a community of around 43,000 with room to grow and this thriving city is doing just that!

The region has become the fastest-growing little city on Vancouver Island, with big retail stores and new residential developments, and the expanding suburban town of Langford became a city in 2003. The motto of Langford is “Golden in setting, determined in Spirit,” containing a reference to the natural beauty of the City of Langford, specifically Goldstream Provincial Park, and a comment on the community’s drive to enhance Langford’s special character and future.
It’s no wonder why this vibrant and growing city has coined the phrase ‘where it all happens’.
