North Port Alberni Homes & Community
Port Alberni’s deep port city is in the heart of the Alberni Valley and at the tip of the Alberni Inlet, one of the island’s
longest inlets. The area’s rich culture and history began as traditional territory of the Nuu-chah-nulth peoples, eventually named after explorers such as Captain Charles William Barkley, and a Spanish officer by the name of Captain Pere d’Alberni who traveled here in the late 1700s.
With all of the western red cedar and douglas fir trees, this valley saw forestry as a dominant economy for many years. Today, it is a service center for local, regional and provincial governments and a supply center for surrounding communities including Bamfield. The city has continued to blossom as a tourist destination for outdoor recreation lovers who relish the seasonal activities around South and North Port Alberni homes from skiing, snowshoeing and hockey in the winter to camping, swimming and hiking in the summer.
