    For the First Nations people of Canada’s West Coast, salmon have been central to a way of life since the beginning of time. In keeping with natural cycles of return and release, visitors have flocked to Campbell River, the Salmon Capital of the World, for decades in search of unbeatable fishing experiences. Nestled on the northeast coast of Vancouver Island where smaller islands cluster at the narrowing of Discovery Passage, Campbell River shows off a unique spot where rivers meet ocean.

    History

    The First Nations on the coast have known of the excellent salmon runs on the Campbell River for centuries. Their village site at the mouth of the river was named Tlamatook, meaning “a place where there are houses.” Archaeological digs at this site have revealed extensive use as a permanent village and fishing site for millennia.

    This area has long been famous for its fishing and people have come from far and wide to enjoy the fishing (and hunting) here, so it is not surprising to learn that the first business established in Campbell River was a hotel, in 1904, known as the Willows Hotel, built by Charles and Frederick Thulin. In 1910, a large party headed by BC’s Commissioner of Lands stayed here before setting out on an exploratory survey of central Vancouver Island. Their expedition resulted in the establishment of BC’s first provincial park, Strathcona Park.

    While Campbell River grew as a service centre surrounded by large logging camps, it also played host to increasing numbers of visitors bent on catching the impressive Tyee salmon, distinguished from other salmon by weighing over 30 pounds. In 1924, to regulate and protect the sport, the Tyee Club of British Columbia established a set of rules which are still adhered to by the Club to this day. The Tyee Club is Campbell River’s oldest organization.

    With the construction of the Discovery Harbour Centre on Weiwaikum First Nation reserve land. The project was the first of its kind in Canada where the First Nation partnered with the development firm, Northwest Group, rather than just leasing out the land. More of the shoreline was re-claimed with fill, and the marina, offices, shopping centre, and restaurants were opened with celebrations and fireworks in 1998. Visitors to the shopping centre will notice the prominence given to First Nations designs on all the buildings and in the many figures and structures scattered throughout.

    Campbell River was incorporated as a city in 2005.
