Dubbed the “Salmon Capital of the World,” sport fishing is king in Campbell River. Located on northern Vancouver Island, it is situated on the 50th parallel at the south end of the Discovery Passage opposite Quadra Island. Nanaimo (90 minutes by car) and Victoria (three hours) are south of the city, while Port Hardy and the ferry to the northern BC mainland is 238km/148mi north along scenic Highway 19.
With natural beauty in a mountain and marine setting, Campbell River offers an inviting blend of rural and urban opportunities with the amenities of a large city and the welcoming feel of a small town. A vibrant downtown, affordable housing, and a mild west coast climate that allows for year-round outdoor recreation and an unparalleled lifestyle, are attracting young families and professionals to the area.
