The Garden City and wider Canterbury region

The population of Christchurch is 363,364 according to the 2001 census with a 2002 estimate of the total population of the Canterbury region as 503,800.

Christchurch being the largest populated area of the Canterbury region is a thriving and growing city situated on the East Coast of the South Island and is known for its abundance of beautiful gardens.

The region has a particularly strong presence in the heavy equipment and farm machinery sectors as well as strong heavy transport dealerships and all major marques represented in the light vehicle sector. Consequently the full range of vacancies are usually available.

The wider Canterbury region like many other parts of New Zealand is the kind of scenery seen only on post cards. Aside from the full range of entertainment facilities found in most cities, the Canterbury region has everything from salmon and trout fishing, to mountain climbing, snow skiing. Lakes, world class walks, heritage trails, jet boating, camping, beaches, rivers and within two hours from Christchurch the famous "Hanmer Springs" thermal hot pool resort.

The Canterbury region is one of New Zealand's richest farming regions with literally hundreds of miles of green wide open spaces with breathtaking mountainous backdrops. Whether you are an adventure seeker, family or city dweller Christchurch holds something for everyone.
