AREA DATA
  Nestled between the Beaufort Mountains and
  the Strait of Georgia on the eastern coast of
  Vancouver Island, the Comox Valley is a
  collection of rolling mountains, delicate alpine
  meadows, rushing rivers, pristine lakes, lush
  forests, fertile farms, incredible beaches and
  more than 40 green parks. This unique
  geography plus a year round temperate
  climate, creates an exceptional location for an
  incredible range of year-round outdoor
  recreation activities.

  In the Comox Valley it really is possible to en
  joy the best of all seasons - you can be knee-
  deep in a winter wonderland, then within half
  an hour be dusting the snow off your boots on
  a lush green golf course, or paddling a kayak through sparkling blue waters.

  The Comox Valley is also a thriving centre for arts and culture. Four major museums, live theatre, a
  dynamic music scene, an active artist community and year round cultural festivals and events are
  just a few of the many attractions the Comox Valley has to offer.

  Gourmet cuisine, unique shopping experiences, galleries and eclectic coffee and tea shops line the
  streets of the Comox Valley's urban centres. Or head into the quiet farmland, hills and coastlines of
  the Comox Valley and experience the relaxed atmosphere of rural life.

  The Comox Valley stretches 50 km (30 miles) along the coast from Fanny Bay (home of the world
  famous Fanny Bay Oysters) to the sandy shores of Saratoga Beach. Getting to the Comox Valley is
  easier than ever with direct flights to the newly expanded Comox Valley Airport (YQQ).

HISTORY
  The Comox Valley has a dynamic and exciting history ranging from 80 million year old marine
  reptiles and earth shaping glaciers to bustling turn of the century coal mines and pioneer farming
  and logging. Local museums explore all elements of local social and natural history and present
  information, new insights and hands-on learning experiences for kids of all ages.

  Millions of years ago, much of Vancouver Island was a saltwater lagoon inhabited by large and often
  ferocious looking marine creatures. But as the climate changed so did the geography. More than
  10,000 years ago, the Comox Valley was buried under a sheet of ice a kilometre thick. As the
  sheets of ice moved across Vancouver Island is scoured valleys out of the land beneath it. When
  the climate warmed again most of the ice sheet melted, leaving the Island as we know it today. The
  Comox Glacier which looms over the Valley is lingering evidence of this time in our natural history.

  Archaeological finds indicate that First Nations peoples have visited and lived in the Comox Valley
  for as long as 9,000 years. Before the appearance of the Europeans, the Valley was home to the
  Pentlatch and Comox bands of the Salishan First Nations. They thrived on the ocean's gifts of
  salmon, clams, oysters, cod and halibut as well as the land's abundant deer and elk and many edible
  and medicinal plants.

  The first European settlers arrived in the Comox Valley in 1862 and soon discovered why the First
  Nations called the area Komoux or Land of Plenty. Over time, the settlers cleared land for farms and
  began logging the extensive forests. In 1914, the railway line from Victoria was extended to the
  Valley; a year later the area around the train station was incorporated as the City of Courtenay.

  Throughout the late 19th century, many Royal Navy war ships anchored in the Comox Bay,
  prompting the construction of the Comox Wharf in 1893. The community officially became known
  as Comox.

  In the late 1800's and the early 1900's coal was the mainstay of central Vancouver Island's
  economy. Built on rich coal seams, the inland settlement of Cumberland became a flourishing
  community that was segregated into separate town sites for the diverse nationalities working in the
  mines including a significant Chinese community. After World War I, the demand for coal lessened
  and Cumberland slowly evolved into a sleepy shadow of her former self.
