Cilaire School Catchment Area 

About Cilaire Real Estate

Back of Cilaire Elementary School at sunrise

Owning a home in the Cilaire Catchment area is very desirable, and the prices reflect that demand. Due to this, some of the most significant increases in dwellings values have been in this catchment area over the last ten years. In this area, the average home is 2100sqft and cost $700,000, which is higher than in most central Nanaimo communities.

Many single-family detached homes here have views overlooking Departure Bay and are oriented to the east allowing you to see gorgeous sunrises. The fantastic views and ease of access to the downtown, Departure Bay Ferry Terminal, and shopping at Brooks landing make this a highly desirable community to live and raise a family.
