There are many recreational activities available on the North Island for all ages: soccer, slo-pitch, and hockey leagues; a curling rink and swimming pool, an Arts Council, Community Theatre, museums, festivals and volunteer opportunities to name a few.
The beauty of the North Island has to be experienced – miles upon miles of glistening white beaches, diamonds dancing on the water, rich green forests, the fresh smell of the ocean air. Walking, kayaking, whale watching, hiking and mountain biking, playing at the beach are just a few of the outdoor activities to be relished.
THE RICH CULTURE AND HISTORY
Home to the Kwakiutl, Gwa’Sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw, ‘Namgis, and Quatsino First Nations, the Mt. Waddington area is rich in tradition and deep-rooted in native culture. Totems and big houses stand tall and weathered throughout the region telling of the aboriginal history that began over 8,000 years ago.
The Kwakwaka’wakw people have a rich history dating back centuries and totem’s, petroglyphs, their ceremonies, rites and food are evident throughout their territory.
Friendly people and community spirit makes the North Island an ideal place to raise a family – and the low cost of living can’t be beat.
