The Communities

Island Health acknowledges with respect and humility the Coast Salish, Nuu-chah-nulth and Kwakwaka’wakw People on whose unceded traditional territories we offer our services and programs.

Renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty, Vancouver Island is the true west coast, located offshore from the city of Vancouver in British Columbia.

Each city offers a close proximity to a wide array of recreational activities including kayaking, kite boarding, windsurfing, fishing, mountain biking, hiking, running, skiing and golfing. 

For your children, choose between public or private schools for grade school and post secondary options are available throughout the island with options at Vancouver Island University, the University of Victoria, Camosun College, Royal Roads University or North Island College.

With its diversity of landscapes, rich heritage and robust cultural scene, the Vancouver Island region offers an opportunity to combine a rewarding career with an enviable quality of life.
