The downtown core still retains many of it’s Edwardian style buildings. The local economy is based on forestry, tourism, and agriculture. A hillside location adjacent to a sheltered harbour form the natural characteristics of the community.

The town straddles the Trans-Canada Highway and is only 1 hour north of Victoria, 20 minutes south of Nanaimo, and 10 minutes north of Chemainus.
