Gambier Island is the largest of four islands located in Howe Sound, British Columbia, Canada. The BC island is approximately twenty-five square miles with only 100 permanent residents, primarily located in New Brighton, Gambier Harbour and West Bay – the number swells to over 600 in the summer. BC Ferries provides passenger service between Langdale and New Brighton and there are gravel roads connecting the three communities. We have electricity and telephone and many have high-speed internet access. There is no car-ferry access – something most residents want to preserve.
Our island currently does not have any commercial enterprises. The Gambier Community Centre (a registered charity, owned and operated by Gambier residents) is the only public facility.
