Today, British Columbia is home to more than 800 floating homes. Although many are moored in coastal marinas, others are moored along rivers and lakeshores. Some marina communities are exclusive to floating homes, others are mixed with boats and live-aboards, and in some cases, boat marinas may host one or two floating homes.
Homes are typically privately owned although there are floating rentals and bed & breakfasts in selected locations. Marina communities range from strata-style developments where homeowners own their water lot, to marinas that provide moorage for privately owned homes. Marina communities in BC range from three to more than forty floating homes in a single marina.
