About Nanaimo

Nanaimo is a vibrant Vancouver Island community situated 60 km (37 miles) from Vancouver on the Salish Sea (Georgia Strait). Surrounded by the natural coastal beauty of British Columbia, Nanaimo is an active city of over 100,000 people with easy access to the abundance of recreational activities for which the Vancouver Island and Gulf Island region is famous.

Situated on the traditional and unceded territory of the Snuneymuxw First Nation, Nanaimo has transitioned from a commodity-based economy into a dynamic and diverse economy predominantly featuring small- and medium-sized enterprises.

The mandate of the Nanaimo Prosperity Corporation is focused on three primary objectives:
  • Develop and sustain a positive business climate.
  • Solve problems, reduce barriers, provide support to retain businesses and help them expand.
  • Promote Nanaimo to attract economic activity and investment.
We’re here to help.
