Laura Wallace and her husband Allen came to Powell River for the lifestyle and are perfect examples of location not being a big factor when it comes to work. Laura is a Luthier who repairs and builds violins which she sells in Victoria and the Lower Mainland. Allen is an IT specialist that is able to work from anywhere. So they’ve been able to build a life for their family in Powell River that they enjoy immensely.
The quality of life here is amazing. We can walk three blocks and we're in the forest, and we can just go down the road a bit and we're at the ocean.
