Gambier Island

Welcome to Gambier Island!

Gambier Island is the largest of four islands located in Howe Sound, British Columbia, Canada (not to be confused with the 14 small Gambier Islands, located 1600 km southeast of Tahiti). The BC island is approximately twenty-five square miles with only 125 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 some of us even 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 is the only public facility. There is no ATM on the island!
