Port Alberni

"A Great Place to Live" - Nestled in the Alberni Valley with over 44 square miles of valley farms and homes in the heart of Vancouver Island. We are situated at the head of the Alberni Inlet, and offer access to the famous West Coast and Pacific Ocean for leisure experiences.

Affordable housing is available at perhaps the most reasonable priced of any B.C. community with comparable services. Moderate priced land for both residential and commercial use is readily available with full services. Recreational land parcels are available for rural living or summer recreation.

Today Port Alberni with its population of approximately 18,000 people still relies primarily on the forest industry. Ready access to the ocean makes fishing important as well. Tourism is continuously increasing, making a most welcome contribution to our economic growth as we provide top quality accommodations, shops and services to suit all needs.

Good reasons for moving to this region are numerous. Visitors are captivated by the Alberni Valley and surrounding area's abundance of greenery, lakes, streams and wildlife. Fishing, camping, sports, arts and a multitude of other activities can be found on the doorstep of our community.

"Salmon Capital of the World" - year round opportunities for salmon, trout, steelhead and halibut abound in Barkley Sound, the protected waters of Alberni Inlet and the many lakes, streams and rivers.

A Temperate moderate marine climate allows for year-round comfortable outdoor enjoyment. 600' mountain elevations offer snow for the winter enthusiast.

Port Alberni is the upbeat, positive "community with a heart" in the Pacific Rim.
