Choose Port Alberni

The best of many worlds.

Port Alberni is located on the west coast of Vancouver Island at the end of a 48-kilometre deep sea inlet, on the banks of the Somass River estuary surrounded by rivers, lakes and mountain ranges. The area has always been rich in natural resources dating back to the days when the ancestors of today's Nuu-chah-nulth people chose to establish their communities here over ten thousand years ago. Today, Port Alberni is the largest city in the Pacific Rim, the region's service center and its commercial hub. 

Situated in the middle of the picturesque Alberni Valley, the city feels at once like it's tucked away from it all and at the same time, connected to the rest of the world through its strategic position as a major transportation hub. Big city amenities with a small town feel and direct access to outdoor adventuring, it's 'urban west coast wild.' There's a little bit of everything; and when it comes to choosing between one option or another Port Alberni asks "why not both?" It's a place that surprises people, with ample opportunity to play to the community's many strengths by building, creating and working together. We're growing, and there's room for you.
