• From the Lasqueti Island web site:

    Lasqueti Island lies in the Georgia Strait, north of French Creek (on Vancouver Island), and southwest of Texada Island. It is approximately 8 km wide and 22 km long, with an area of 73.56 sq km. It is accessible by foot passenger ferry service only, or by private boat or plane.

    The roads are unpaved and the island has no public transportation. There are no public campgrounds. Lasqueti is not serviced by B.C. Hydro. Residents live either without electricity or with alternative sources of power like solar or micro-hydro. There is very little industry and no bustling economy.
