About Salt Spring Island
Salt Spring Island is in a group of islands called the Gulf Islands which are located between Vancouver and Vancouver Island. It was one of the first agricultural settlements on the west coast. Today, it is one of the most populous and frequently-visited islands with ferry service direct from Tsawwassen, Victoria, and Crofton, BC. and seaplace service from the mainland and Vancouver Island.
The civic centre is Ganges Village which has a variety of eclective shops, services, and art venues. The island has schools for all levels of education. Local bus service is provided by the province although locals will pick-up hitchhikers. No need to worry about extended shopping as the Canada Post outlet will accept deliveries for online shopping.
