Strong Commitment to Conservation

ABOUT HIGHLANDS

There has always been a strong commitment to conservation in this community and a tradition of stewardship in support of the local ecosystems. Development in the area is subject to bylaws intended to lessen impact on local flora and fauna, as well as preserving the rural ambiance. People are encouraged to build homes that minimize negative environmental effects, and that blend into their surroundings. Stategies include positioning homes to be less visible from roads or viewpoints, avoiding vegetation removal where possible and employing natural materials in construction. The result of this commitment is a community that treads softly in nature, and is molded by the land rather than drastically altering the environment to suit its needs.

Close to Commute

HIGHLANDS LIVING

It may seem isolated when you are there, but the people living in the Highlands enjoy an easy commute to communities on the Saanich Peninsula, the Western Communities and Victoria. In fact, many residents commute regularly for work as the municipality offers little commercial or industrial activity. If you need to travel, the Victoria International Airport and the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal are close by. Highlands has its own Fire Hall operated by volunteers and policing is provided by the RCMP.

“Help your Neighbor” Attitude

Homes in the Highlands range from rustic cabins to massive estate properties. There are people who live here full-time and those for whom the Highlands is their summer getaway. One thing you won’t find here is an urban style subdivision, a purposeful exclusion planned by the municipality to safeguard the rural atmosphere. People who choose to live here do so because they enjoy nature, and there is an ingrained tradition of volunteerism and a “help your neighbor” attitude that evokes the pioneer spirit of the past.

Find Your Dream Home In Highlands

During the winter months the Highlands receives about 30% more rainfall and slightly cooler temperatures than Victoria, mostly because of its marginally higher altitude. This is important to top up the wells that are relied on by residents for water supply.

Regional, municipal or provincial parkland encompasses fully one third of the Highlands, and within these are some of Greater Victoria’s most extensive trail systems. There is even a wheelchair accessible boardwalk and trail at Francis/King Regional Park.
