About Nanaimo

imageIncorporated in 1874, Nanaimo is the third oldest city in British Columbia. Once the location of five separate native villages, its name derives from a Coast Salish word, Sney -ny-mo", the "meeting place" - a perfect description of the rapidly growing harbour community at the centre of Vancouver Island's highway and ferry system.

 
The bustling harbour is the central focus for visitors to Nanaimo. Choose from wildlife cruises, kayaking trips, or fishing charters. A playground of land and sea activities, Nanaimo is a perfect place for a family vacation, a year-round go getaway, or a romantic weekend.
 
With its comfortable climate, beautiful natural surroundings, affordable housing, strong labour market, exceptional recreational opportunities and relaxed lifestyle, Nanaimo is emerging as the favoured place to live, work and play on Vancouver Island.Many young families are moving here, looking at self-employment and entrepreneurial opportunities. The City boasts an excellent school system and expanding facilities at Malaspina-University College.
 
For more information on Nanaimo please visit Tourism Nanaimo.
