Enter to win - #MyBCStaycation


Like many, Dave's summer vacation plans have changed and he's opted for a staycation. Fortunately, there are still lots of opportunities for summer fun.


What's your staycation style?

Whether it's having a BBQ with friends, relaxing at home, checking out the local sites, or exploring the great outdoors – Dave has tips to help you make the most of your summer spent a little closer home.


The adventure seeker

Paddleboard yoga, anyone? Getting out and exploring the natural beauty of B.C. may be your idea of a perfect summer, but remember whether you're hitting the trails or playing in the water – safety should always be top of mind.

The entertaining enthusiast

Is gathering with friends and family for a meal in the backyard more your style? Cooking a meal on the BBQ and pairing it with delicious salads is a tasty way to help keep cool as your cooking game heats up.

The hometown tourist

A staycation is a great opportunity to explore the sites in your local area. Hop in your EV, ride your bike, or take public transit to check out some of your local hotspots.

The at-home chiller

There's nothing wrong with a staycation spent relaxing at home. Strategically placing fans to keep the cool air in, and move the warm air out can help keep things cool and comfortable.
