With a population of over 3,600 people, Lantzville is poised for residential, commercial and industrial growth. Business friendly and unpretentious, the District of Lantzville is situated directly north of the City of Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. Quiet, independent and unspoiled, Lantzville, for the longest time sat comfortably unnoticed, not even having a sign on the highway directing people to its historic village core or modern foothills communities. Times have changed!
In September 2018, Lantzville released its new Economic Development Strategy and long-term economic vision.
Lantzville is a unique and thriving community with a healthy mix of professionals, prospering local-serving businesses, industrial tenants, and home-based businesses. It is a place where young families, professionals, and retirees come to live a more relaxed life, with diverse housing options, ample green spaces, and outdoor recreational opportunities in the community, along the seaside, and in the forest. The Lantzville Village Core is a thriving place where locals gather and that attracts people from Upper and Lower Lantzville, daytrippers from around the region, and those driving by on Highway 19 looking for a unique and intriguing reason to pull off the highway.
Lantzville’s assets include relatively high incomes, a diversified workforce and a steady tax base. The Lantzville Economic Snapshot, completed in February 2018, provides valuable and useful data to help prospective new businesses and residents understand the community’s economic base.
