Where we are ...
Where British Columbia's majestic forests meet the stunning Pacific Ocean you will find some of the most breathtaking scenery in all of Canada. From the forested slopes of Alberni Inlet to the magnificent sandy beaches of Long Beach, the West Coast of Vancouver Island is known world wide for its abundant sea life, lush rainforests and scenic mountain vistas.
At the heart of the west coast are the communities of Port Alberni, Bamfield, Tofino and Ucluelet. Although closely situated to Nanaimo and the larger cities of Victoria and metropolitan Vancouver, these west coast communities maintain a unique, casual lifestyle. Also home to the Nuu Chah Nulth First Nations, the west coast is richly influenced by local first nations peoples, and proudly maintains and displays traditional first nations arts, language and culture.
The west coast’s rugged natural beauty provides numerous recreational opportunities that make it a leading destination for outdoors enthusiasts. Whale watching, hiking, kayaking, fishing and wildlife viewing are natures complements to the many sports and recreation activities enjoyed in the region.
The Pacific Rim International Student Program is the first choice for International Students seeking a quality education in a uniquely Canadian location.
