Situated on the east coast of Vancouver Island the Comox Valley is comprised of
the City of Courtenay, the Town of Comox, the Village of Cumberland and the
idyllic rural areas from Fanny Bay in the south to Black Creek in the north and
includes the islands of Hornby and Denman. The Comox Valley is one of the
Island’s best-kept secrets!
Surrounded by majestic mountains, rushing rivers, lush rainforests and
shimmering seas, this region is highly attractive to those seeking variety and a
superb quality of life, as well as affordable housing. A great place to raise a family,
we have a strong sense of community and a shared spirit of cooperation. We are
one of the fastest growing areas in Canada and educational facilities range from
elementary to full degree programs at the North Island College.
The valley enjoys short mild winters and warm dry summers. The Comox Valley is
also host to over 50 annual festivals, and the local Sid Williams Theatre provides
year-round performing arts. For great boutique shopping, go to 5th Street in
Courtenay and visit the local restaurants, farmers market and vineyards for the
renowned local food scene.
If you enjoy the outdoors, Mount Washington Ski resort, which has 1700 acres of
terrain, is only 30 minutes outside the city. World-renowned mountain biking
trails that can be ridden year-round are located in Cumberland. Furthermore, the
beautiful west coast community of Tofino is only 2.5 hours away. A typical
weekend in the region can include superb salmon fishing, paddle boarding at
Goose Spit or on Comox Lake, a tube float down the Puntledge River, or time
spent on a patio at one of the three local micro-breweries.
The physician community is welcoming and collegial with 19 full-service medical
clinics, two walk-in clinics, and a military base clinic. We are currently served by
the Island Health run Comox Valley Hospital, a 153-bed acute care facility.
