Located on the Sunshine Coast of BC, Powell River boasts a mild climate and innumerable opportunities for outdoor activities such as fishing, sailing, kayaking, camping and mountain climbing, to name a few. Being situated on a peninsula surrounded by mountainous terrain means you need a ferry to access the other points of interest such as Nanaimo (3.5 hours travel total) or Vancouver (4.5 hrs). However, Powell River has everything you need from affordable housing, to health services, to schools of all levels. What began as a resource extraction centre is now a livable community and a hub for adventure and culture.
