It’s the feeling of belonging as you sip on an aromatic cuppa joe with the friendly locals at a coffee shop. It’s the comradeship you feel with other parents as your children play together at the park. It’s the warmth you feel when you understand why this tight-knit place is fondly known as ‘The Community with a Heart’. It’s the sense of freedom and accessibility in Port Alberni’s central island location and feeling of sanctuary in its affordable cost of living.
