Campbell River

Campbell River is a city in British Columbia on the east coast of Vancouver Island at the south end of Discovery Passage. The people of Campbell River rely on the forestry, mining, fishing, and tourism industries. It is arguably the salmon capital of the world, sharing a healthy rivalry with nearby Port Alberni, the other contender.


It is known for its sport fishing, a major tourist attraction. It is also a major centre for salmon farming with several head offices located in the community serving nearby salmon farms.
