Welcome to Arbutus Ridge, the award winning master-planned seaside community of 650 homes, for Adults 50 + years young.  It is built on 148 acres of waterfront landscapes, that wind along craggy outcrops of rock and through berms of protected forests and golf course: all connected by a network of oceanfront walking trails, a marine facility, gardens, green space, and paved roadways with a common-use village centre.

The stunning vistas around each corner will delight you, with scenes of the Pacific Ocean, majestic Mount Baker, Salt Spring Island, whales and eagles, sizzling sun rises and the Arbutus Ridge Championship Golf Course.

Within 10 to 60 minutes, you’ll find all the major amenities you’ll ever need – hospitals, airports, ferry and bus terminals, marinas, shopping, restaurants, banks, universities and cultural events.

Noted to be one of Canada’s first gated adult communities, Arbutus Ridge was modelled after the wildly successful Del Webb Community in Sun City, Arizona, that defined the dream retirement concept in the U.S.

No wonder Arbutus Ridge by the Sea has been described as “Canada’s most dynamic and visionary active lifestyle Community”.


Gated 24/7 Security Service


Arbutus Ridge is one of Canada’s first gated adult communities.  The 24/7  staffed security service offers peace of mind knowing that your safety is a key priority, regardless of whether you are home or away.

The “Lock and Leave” feature is  rated as one of the top reasons residents give for moving to Arbutus Ridge!   

The Security Team is trained to assist during household emergencies prior to the arrival of outside emergency vehicles.
