Nestled between the city and the ocean, Port Moody offers the perfect combination of an urban and suburban lifestyle. Been thinking of relocating? Here’s five reasons why you’ll love living in Port Moody:


Living in Port Moody is convenient for working professionals and families. Along the Evergreen SkyTrain transit line, and close to the West Coast Express means you can quickly access the downtown core or explore other neighborhoods.


Ocean front living at its finest. In the summertime, bask up the sun at White Pine Beach or go kayaking up Indian Arm. There are plenty of outdoor activities a few steps away.

Brewers Row:

If grabbing a pint with your furry friend is more your thing, you can check out an amazing selection of local breweries. Yellow Dog Brewing even topped the list of best breweries! “In a recent consumer survey from Vancouver research firm Insights West, Port Moody’s Yellow Dog Brewing topped the list of 30 beer makers and brands.”

Arts and Culture:

Known as the City of the Arts, visit the Port Moody Arts Centre to explore the Port Moody arts community. The Port Moody Arts Centre offers “classes for people of all ages and experience levels to explore their creativity in a variety of artistic disciplines”.

Family Friendly:

If you have a growing family, Port Moody offers excellent K-12 schools, an outdoor public pool, and what kid wouldn’t want some delicious ice cream at Rocky Point!
