WELCOME TO GOLD RIVER

 

The Village of Gold River is a resource based community, developed by the Tahsis Company Ltd. in the 1960's and for more than forty years Gold River has been the "Gateway to Historic Nootka Sound". 

 

Rich in history and resources, Nootka Sound enjoys a reputation as a premier fishing destination.  

 

Gold River takes its name from Rio del Oro, explored in the late 1780's by Spaniards searching for gold.  

We are a small community of 1,350, hidden in the heart of Vancouver Island.  The village nestles on the western edge of Strathcona Park, British Columbiaís oldest, provincial park.  It is also the only road access to Nootka Sound and Yuquot, ancestral home of the Mowachaht people and site of first contact by Europeans in the late 1700's.

Surrounded by steep, tree-clad mountains, nourished by cold, clear rivers and lakes teeming with fish, we bask in the temperate west coast climate and live the wilderness junkieís dream.

VILLAGE OF GOLD RIVER IS NOW RECYCLING HOUSEHOLD PLASTIC CONTAINERS 1-7.  

The Gold River Drop-Off Depot is now accepting household plastic containers for numbers 1-7:  rinse and flatten, discard caps (no Styrofoam of any kind and no polystyrene packing trays), no plastic bags or film plastic.  Residents are requested to continue to take refundable beverage containers and tetrapaks where they are accepted.  Click here for a copy of the Gold River Plastic Recycling Guide.
