  • Community Information

    Kyuquot (pronounced “ky YOO cut”) is an unincorporated settlement and First Nations Indian reserve community located on Kyuquot Sound on northwestern Vancouver Island, BC. Kyuquot Sound is on the northern west coast of Vancouver Island. It is a wilderness area except for a number of logging camps, and Kyuquot Village, the northernmost of the 14 Nuu-chah-nulth First Nation bands. The only road access to Kyuquot Sound is at Fair Harbour on the eastern shore of the Sound.

    The village of Kyuquot is home to 300 Natives and others, whose homes are built into the forest above the tideline. Much of the architecture here is identifiably Canadian West Coast style: modern and well kept, a testimony to good years in the fishing industry. Despite the overwhelming sense a visitor feels that the logging industry is the only employer around, brought on by endless patches of clear-cut on all sides coupled with an absence of other marine traffic, fishing is the predominant vocation in Kyuquot. In recent years, with the fishing season becoming more limited, tourism is seen by some residents as a viable alternative profession. Kyuquot village has a bed and breakfast, motel and restaurant, a general store, a Red Cross medical clinic, phone service, boat charters and a water taxi.

    The climate of this region is classified as temperate rainforest. It is mild with temperatures rarely dipping before 0 degrees.
