About Salt Spring

Salt Spring Island is located on the traditional territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, which is the traditional land of multiple Indigenous communities, including the Cowichan, Tsawwassen, Tsawout, Malahat and Tseycum. Our island population of 11,000 is culturally rich and known for our locally owned businesses, artisan food products, crafts people, beverage makers, wineries, inns and cottages, hiking trails, our much-visited beaches and campgrounds. Locals are renowned for our hospitality, free spirit, outdoor adventurism and creative gusto.

During these challenging times and to effectively recover from the pandemic, we need to invest in the many locally-owned businesses and community organizations that are part of the interwoven fabric of island life. Now is the time to provide support through the Island COMEBACK program to ensure that in the long-term our island culture can sustain itself and bounce back from this time of adversity.

Salt Spring Islanders love to gather and celebrate, hosting musical and arts performances. We are proud to be known as one of Canada’s premier arts communities. That’s why you’ll not only find our artists’ works in local galleries, but also in the National Gallery of Canada. We’re also renowned for our famed Saturday Market, our Salt Spring Studio Tour, inviting pubs and locally inspired concert halls. All of these things need your help to safeguard they’re still available when the island opens up again.

People are drawn here from around the world wishing to experience our lush landscapes, sea views, hiking trails, kayaking and whale watching. We welcome you to plan a future visit or staycation, in the meantime please support this recovery and renewal initiative.
