Says the Health Professional...

"After 10 years in Vancouver, we were ready to move to a community with a more relaxed pace of life. Creston has the best BC has to offer - unlimited outdoor activities and wonderful weather - without the fast-paced lifestyle and expensive standard of living of most of the communities on the coast. We needed to settle in a community where we would be able to fulfill our career goals, yet still have quality time to raise our kids."
- Dr. Karen Persad
