An Hour From Vancouver There Is A Secret Island Where Everyone Lives Completely Off-Grid

Categories: Life Stories

Lasqueti is a secret Canadian island where the vast majority of residents are completely off-grid.

Lasqueti is located between Vancouver and Vancouver Island, home to a little known community of off-gridderswho take pride in their isolation from both mainstream culture and the mainland.

The 2011 census recorded 426 people living in Lasqueti, who meet up to socialize in the island’s (one) bar and cafe. They have no need for money as they live off the land. Lasqueti also has a free store, where people can leave or collect items without any monetary exchange.

This journalist with 16×9 traveled there to see what it’s like to live off the grid. Have a look.
