Hi / Calendar

    - Welcome to Savary Island     

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Note" New "REAL ESTATE / MAP" ,main feature, Savary map, with listing locations."

I have lived, worked, and played on Savary for decades.

On this site I try to convey the facts and flavours of this Island I call home.

Savary is about 5 miles tip to tip, lies East West, is not very deep, averaging half a mile.

A line from Powell River to Campbell River would run though it.

It is blessed with a very temperate climate, lots of sunshine and surrounded by sandy beaches .

Since The 1930's Savary Island has been a cottage destination. From 1930 to 1980 The Royal Savary Hotel flourished.

The cottage tradition continues, there are roughly 100 'year rounders' and because more cottages are comfortable and people tend to have more time.

( SAVARY ISLAND NEWS , JANUARY 2024 EDITION

In the long dreary days of January, while waiting for the snow to fall, a group of us did the winter head count of “year round residents”. This does not include property owners whose main house is on Savary but who go some place warm for the winter. It’s a surprisingly big number of 78 people we could agree were year round residents.
There were only two at Indian Point, seven at Sunset Trail, and seven on Meadow Lane. We took Herchmer to Leighton as mid island and counted 31. Savary Shores yielded 16 and Mace Point was 15. Giving us the grand total of 78 hardy year rounders.

Visitors and owners are common throughout the year.

 Reliable internet & a year round store have contributed to more staying on Island in the off season.

SAVARY FIRE RESTRICTION UPDATE
BURN PILES ALLOWED with size restrictions
Effective NOON Tuesday October 17, 2023
A 1 metre x 1 metre fire is easier to control, and as long as you have a good base of hot embers, this size of fire is big enough to handle all the yard debris you need to burn.
Every person who intends to construct and ignite a burn pile of material that is larger than 1 metre in diameter and 1 metre in height must notify the Fire Chief at least 24 hours ahead of igniting the burn pile. SIVFD Fire Chief 604-414-9495.
No person shall construct or ignite a burn pile where the material is larger than 3 metres in diameter and 2 metres in height.
Before lighting a fire always check the wind forecast. If you see sparks and flames going sideways towards combustibles you must extinguish the fire immediately. Do not leave the fire unattended. Remember to have a sufficient supply of water or other substance close at hand that could extinguish the fire.
BC's guide to properly Burning Outdoors: Never burn garbage or construction debris. It is illegal unless specifically authorized, and it releases toxic chemicals into the air. Effects of these toxins include cancer, lowered immunity, disorders of the nervous system, and interfere with childhood development. http://www2.gov.bc.ca/.../smoke-burning/burning-outdoors
