Located on the east coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Courtenay is the only placethat’s classed a “city” in the Comox Valley and is situated around 100 km northwest of Nanaimo.
The city, which sits on the Strait of Georgia, had a population of 24,099 as of 2011, and covers an area of 26 sq. km.
The population is made up of 90% whites, 5% Aboriginal, and 4.6% visible minority population.
Courtenay was inhabited by First Nation people thousands of years before European settlers moved in.
The K’ómoks First Nation community used the land for agriculture and its positioning close to the ocean made fishing and trading with other settlements possible. In 1792, Captain George Vancouver discovered the area and anchored the HMS Discovery in what’s now Comox Harbour.
The earliest European settlers in Courtenay were coal miners from Nanaimo in the late 1800s, and they also worked with the First Nations people to do farm and labour work.
Chinese and Japanese immigrants came to the area in 1888 when a coal mine was established in Union, and the town was officially incorporated in 1915.
Courtenay enjoys an oceanic climate similar to the rest of Vancouver Island, due to its close proximity to the ocean.
It’s relatively dry in the summer months and averages around the low- to mid-20s (oC), while the winters are typically quite wet.
Because Courtenay is situated close to the mountains, it often sees precipitation from higher ground.
Snow isn’t uncommon in winter too, especially when the Arctic winds roll in.
While Courtenay’s economy once relied heavily on its natural resources – such as coal, fishing, and farming – it now focuses more on supplying services to its retiree communities and military families.
The Canadian Forces Base in Comox is the largest employer in the area, and Courtney is home to the Canadian Scottish Regiment, an infantry regiment of the Canadian Forces which also has bases in Nanaimo and Victoria. Tourism and retail also form a large part of the economy, and the area has 4 local airports, the largest being Comox Valley Airport which is used by WestJet and Pacific Coastal Airlines.
