Why live in Campbell River?

Campbell River is a coastal city located on Vancouver Island. It is situated on the island’s east coast, roughly 40 minutes north of Courtenay and Comox. It has a population of just over 35,000 people and has been nicknamed the “Salmon Capital of the World.” Why? The waters around Campbell River are home to all five species of salmon, which makes it a popular fishing destination, especially in the summer months. More than fishing, Campbell River is an ideal spot for all kinds of outdoor activities, like hiking, golfing, boating, camping, wildlife-watching, cross-country skiing, and more. It’s also less than 40 minutes from Strathcona Provincial Park, the oldest in British Columbia and the largest on Vancouver Island. Other reasons to live in Campbell River? The city has tons of character and charm that attract both young families with children and retirees. In terms of infrastructure, Campbell River is roughly 2 hours north of Nanaimo, which offers ferry services through BC Ferries to Horseshoe Bay in Vancouver.

North Island Hospital has an extensive range of healthcare services, including a 24-hour emergency room, testing facilities, inpatient care, and outpatient care. Although Campbell River is relatively affordable compared to other places in British Columbia, especially the major cities of Vancouver and Victoria, it is somewhat higher than other smaller cities, especially those on the island, so buyers should be prepared for this extra price tag.
