Located at the heart of the West Coast of Vancouver Island, Port Alberni is a friendly and affordable waterfront community. Port Alberni truly has something for everyone, from urban living to rural amenities, all set within a picturesque valley rich with natural resources, stunning views and majestic mountains and rivers. With our unique positioning at the head of the 48 kilometre long Alberni Inlet, we have one of the finest deep-sea harbours in North America. Our surroundings are incredible. Hiking, recreational fishing, mountain biking and various water activities (swimming, boating, tubing, kayaking, kite boarding and canoeing) are all found here. The City of Port Alberni offers a deep sea port, beautiful waterfront quays, an airport with a new runway expansion, a modern 52 bed hospital anchored by first class health care services, great schools including a community college and a new $58 million state-of-the-art high school, affordable child care, an abundance of shopping, a casino, a well-developed array of recreational facilities and a vast supporting infrastructure often found in much larger cities. So in a matter of minutes, you can travel from city shopping plazas into the thick of the Alberni Valley wilderness with surging rivers and a rain forest of giant trees towering more than 61 m (200ft). We invite you to come and view our wonderfully restored past and take the time to witness our proud heritage evident through-out our city. Contact us to find out how you can be part of one of the best places to live and do business.
