Port Moody is a special place, small enough to bump into your neighbours but large enough to offer the urban conveniences that we all crave.
It's a place to raise a family without having to sacrifice the things that you want as an adult. It feels like a community and it truly is a community.
It's a place where you build relationships with the people that you see at the rink, or at your children's school or on the bike trail.
It's like your favorite pair of jeans that are super comfortable but also happen to look terrific.
