Located in the Traditional Territories of the Tla’amin First Nation, Powell River has the coastal mountains in its backyard and the ocean on its doorstep. The community provides a wonderful mixture of world class arts, culture, recreation, heritage, festivals and the best in education, health care and infrastructure. All these things and more have drawn many people to Powell River to build a different kind of life in a safe and comfortable environment with the best that British Columbia and Canada can offer.
Many people describe the coastal city of Powell River as paradise. Nestled within a lush temperate rainforest along the Salish Sea, Powell River's moderate climate is the envy of most Canadian cities that suffer through a cold and harsh winter; the winter season in Powell River is mild with temperatures rarely below freezing. This blessing affords residents an abundance of world-class outdoor recreation opportunities year round.
Many of Powell River’s new residents have become entrepreneurs and started new businesses, such as 32 Lakes Coffee and Townsite Brewing, or they have bought established businesses, and sometimes emigrated from other countries. Others are telecommuters, working remotely and enjoying the wonderful balance of work and life.
Named a Cultural Capital of Canada in 2004, Powell River offers a wide range of activities for arts and culture enthusiasts. We are home to world renowned festivals, such as the International Choral Festival Kathaumixw and the Pacific Region International Summer Music Association (PRISMA). Powell River is also home to the Patricia Theatre, Canada's oldest continuously operating movie house.
