I am an American citizen and in the near future want to move to Canada..British Columbia to be precise. I already know all the specifics of becoming a citizen and all that but I am at a loss as to WHERE to move to. I want an area that is very isolated of people but is full of nature, particularly lake and mountain regions. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

There is a park close to Hastings and Main streets, in a small village called Vancouver.


In this park you will find the most natural part of BC, with lakes and mountains as well. :D

Anywhere outside the lower mainland, I would say. That leaves you around 900,000 square kilometers to explore :)

53.13'13.06 North
123.58'14.87 West

I found it on Google Earth... isolated and full of nature, lakes and mountains.
On second thought, I don't remember seeing a lake, but there's a river and a waterfall. :D

Anywhere on the BC-Yukon Border :D this way if I am fed up with the Province I just step over to the Yukon Territory. It's isolated and has all of nature and geography.

Is that the place that has the blackberry bramble over by the moss covered rock that looks like a squatting bear?

You may want to avoid Northeastern BC unless you like living in an industrial zone. Frackin' rigs... oil and gas has completely ruined the area.

Try Stewart, BC. Or Powell River, Port Alice, Winter Harbour, Skidegate, Any of the Gulf Islands, Port McNeil, Prince Rupert, etc.

Wonder if this is yet another one post member here to collect info from us and leave. :?

Highway 97 north of Cache Creek is pretty isolated, but you're always within 100 miles of a decent sized urban Center up to Prince George.

I did pretty much as you plan to do back in 1969 moving up from southern California except I chose the Yukon Territory. After a couple of years of getting acclimated in Faro,Y.T., I moved us down to central B.C. As Canadian_Mind said, any place north of Cache Creek is pretty underpopulated. You might want to choose a climate preference too. south central B.C. is very dry with lots of big lakes and mountains. The west coast and Vancouver Island is northern temperate rain forest, pretty wet but mild.

In retirement, I've settled in a small town 53N that seems pretty mild year round, our weather is cool but boring, just as I like it.
