    About the Comox Valley

    The Comox Valley is centrally located for all number of outdoor pursuits on the ocean, extensive trail networks and year-round activities at Mount Washington. The region offers a wide range of vineyards and local farms, a rich music, arts, sports and cultural calendar and annual festivals that attract people from around the globe. Comox has a new state-of-the-art hospital, schools at all levels as well as a North Island College campus, an aqua centre, ice arena and various rec facilities. The Comox Valley continues to attract a diverse population to its big city facilities yet maintains the small-town vibe for those who seek it. The busier southern tip of the Island or the more remote wilderness of the northern tip are both within 3hrs drive, as are the waves of the west coast and access to the various gulf islands up and down the Salish Sea.
