Port McNeill

Geography

The town of Port McNeill is a thriving community on the northeast side of Vancouver Island, overlooking the Broughton Strait and sheltered by Malcolm and Cormorant islands.

Location

Port McNeill serves as a hub for all of north Vancouver Island. Mostly composed of rugged mountains and remote islands, the area is relatively under populated. Within its boundaries are the traditional lands of the Kwakwaka'wakw First Nation, which forms a significant minority in the region and a majority in many smaller communities.
