Community Information

The Comox Valley is one of the Island’s best-kept secrets! It includes the unique communities of: Comox (a relaxed seaside town), Courtenay (a bustling urban city), Cumberland (a young and artistic village), and the idyllic rural areas from Fanny Bay in the South to Black Creek in the North including the islands of Hornby and Denman.  The Comox Valley is welcoming and family-oriented with many of the amenities of a larger city.

It is one of the fastest growing communities in Canada, with educational facilities ranging from elementary to full degree programs at the North Island College. The Valley enjoys short, mild winters and warm, dry summers with endless adventure that includes alpine skiing, deep sea diving, golfing, sailing, kayaking, hiking and biking. 

The Comox Valley hosts over 50 annual festivals, with the local Sid Williams Theatre providing year-round performing arts. For shopping, go to 5th street in Courtenay for great boutique shops and visit the local restaurants, farmers market and vineyards for the renowned local food scene.

We are currently served by St. Joseph’s General Hospital (SJGH) hospital until 2017, which will be then be replaced with Comox Valley Hospital, a brand new 153-bed acute care facility. SJGH will repurposed and transition to an extended care facility.
