Engel & Völkers Vancouver Island North
The Comox Valley is a region on the east coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, that includes the city of Courtenay, the town of Comox, the village of Cumberland, and the incorporated settlements of Royston, Union Bay, Fanny Bay, Black Creek and Merville with a population of nearly 67,000. There are endless amounts of attractions that make the Comox Valley somewhere worth relocating to. It is a destination where creative energy runs high for all ages from the exceptional local food, award-winning wineries and craft brewery scene to it living up its name "The Valley of Festivals". There's not many places to live where you can play all year round amongst beaches, mountains and more all in one day! Its year round moderate climate is a perfect gateway for all types of outdoor enthusiasts with it being one of BC's best mountain biking destinations, a short drive away from world class alpine resort of Mt. Washington and its endless abundance of old growth hiking trails. For those who travel often, Comox Valley Airport offers daily non-stop flights that create a smooth transition for travellers seeking to enter or exit Vancouver Island. The Comox Valley schools have wonderful programs from athletics, to music, to strong academics to French immersion. The large military base of CFB Comox is a significant component of the local economy, as is our leading-edge Island North Hospital which was introduced to the community October of 2017. Over recent years the Comox Valley has had a dynamic regional growth as the community has structured itself to attract many young families, entrepreneurs and investors. So come for a visit, we know you'll love it as much as we do.
