Gibsons is a coastal community located in southwestern British Columbia, Canada on the Strait of Georgia, approx. 40 km northwest of Vancouver. The Town's compact boundaries encompass only 4,400 residents, but it is the retail and services hub for a population of approx. 13,000. In October 2009, the town was declared the "Most Liveable Community in the World" (under 20,000 population) at the international Livcom Awards. Endorsed by the United Nations Environment Programme, the LivCom competition focuses on Best Practices for management of the local environment. In 2009 Gibsons also won an Energy & Climate Action Award for Community Planning and Development from the Community Energy Association, in part for its publicly owned geoexchange system. Like many coastal communities, Gibsons is transitioning from a forestry and fishing base to a more diverse economy with construction trades, business services, retail and tourism becoming prominent. Nonetheless, the scenic working harbour is still at the heart of the town. A popular retirement destination, Gibsons attracts many artists and musicians, as well as professionals who commute by ferry into nearby Vancouver, or are able to work globally from home, thanks to the availability of top speed fibre optic service.
