About Our Powell River Communities

The Powell River Peninsula, often referred to as the Upper Sunshine Coast, is made up of communities separated from the rest of BC by mountains on one side and water on the other.  Rich in history, the communities range from the tiny town of Lund, the gateway to Desolation Sound, to the City of Powell River with a population of just over 13,000.  The area, which extends from Lund to Saltery Bay and includes the inhabited islands of Texada and Savary, boasts a total population of just under 20,000.

But those are just statistics. What really draws people here to visit or live is the beauty of the area and the abundance of choices to explore the outdoors. Once here, however, it is the almost magical feeling shared by much of the population that makes them want to return to visit again and again or make it their home.
