Near Vancouver, There Is A “Secret” Island Where Everyone Lives Completely Off-Grid There is a small island between Vancouver Island and Vancouver called Lasqueti that is 12 miles long and 3 miles wide. On this island, there is a community living off the grid who enjoys being separate from the mainstream Canadian culture. Most of the residents live simply. They have very little in the way of industry or economy and because they take almost nothing from the land their carbon footprint is rather small. Lasqueti is “an island of individuals, with poets, artists, physicists, fishermen, loggers, tree planters, designers, professional musicians, published authors, some small scale manufacturers, some commercial agriculture as well as professional consultants in education, engineering, forestry and alternate energy.” – Lasqueti Community blog. The community is focused on keeping its resources renewable. That may not sound comfortable to the average person, but few can argue that using up fossil fuels isn’t the way to go. The island also features one cafe and one bar.
