The Village of Queen Charlotte is a pristine ocean side community located at the southern end of Graham Island at Skidegate Inlet. The residents of this community have deep roots in the cultural history of the area and an inherent respect for the environment. Opportunities for investment in the local economy are apparent with the abundance of natural resources, outdoor tourism, and cultural attractions. Originally founded around the North American Timber Company sawmill in 1908, the Village of Queen Charlotte took advantage of the lumber and fishing industry to grow into the thriving community that it is today. Recently, diversification into the tourism industry has helped to enrich the lives of the residents by providing opportunities for tours into the Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site, and access to a year round QC Visitor Center. Historical homesteads, museums and logging and fishing sites also serve as excellent cultural attractions. Queen Charlotte offers an unparalleled quality of living for the outdoor enthusiast. It is surrounded by multitude of beaches, ocean based recreational activities and hiking and camping locations. Residents need only look into their backyard for access to the natural attractions that Haida Gwaii has to offer. Transportation via BC Ferries (terminal within the village boundaries) or Air Canada Jazz daily from Sandspit moves both freight and people. The new Haida Gwaii Hospital and Health Centre - Xaayda Gwaay Ngaaysdll Naay opened in 2016, bringing state of the art health care to the community. There is an Elementary school in Skidegate, Secondary School in Queen Charlotte as well as an alternative school in Queen Charlotte. The Haida Gwaii Higher Education Society, a private organization, offers 15 credits per semester in coordination with the University of BC Faculty of Forestry. The islands are the classroom, UBC your university.
