Our ocean front community is situated on the Sunshine Coast appropriately named as we have one of the mildest climates in Canada. It is located 100 miles north of Vancouver BC. You can either take a 25 minute plane ride from Vancouver or experience the coastal life by taking two 45 minute car/passenger ferries and an hour drive along the Sunshine Coast. We are also a 70 minute ferry ride from the beautiful Vancouver Island. Our community of 20,000 people is situated at the door step of the world acclaimed Desolation Sound. Boaters from all over the world come to this pristine wilderness marine park for boating, fishing, sailing, and kayaking. Powell River is the dive capital of the world. If the marine life is not for you, there are miles of hiking trails, or a round of golf on a 18 hole championship course, just minutes away from home. We also have a very active arts community, which hosts, choral fests, jazz summits and other musical concerts. In addition there is a sizable French community in Powell River.
Something about ourselves
