Comox is a town of around 12,000 people located on the eastern coast of Vancouver Island. Situated on a small peninsula in the Georgia Strait, Comox lies 220 km or 137 miles north of Victoria and 107 km or 66 miles north of Nanaimo.

"Comox" is a name that comes from the Salish First Nations people's that settled within the region many thousands of years ago. The region was named kw'umuxws, which in Coast Salish meant "plentiful." The Kwakwla Indian word of Komuckway translates to Place of Plenty. This was a reference to the abundant berries and game within the Comox Valley. The European settlers changed the name to Komoux and eventually Comox.

The dry and warm summer months, fertile soil, abundant sea life, together with mild wintertimes first attracted the people to call the area home. During the mid 19th century, the place was opened for settlement and it quickly attracted farmers, a fishing industry, in addition to a lumber industry. The village remained secluded for over 50 years. It was only accessible to the outside world by ship until during the First World War. At that time, a railway and roads were built in the region.

The Comox Valley contained half of the agricultural land on Vancouver Island. By the turn of the 21st century, the jobs started moving away from resource based businesses like for instance logging and fishing. At that time, the biggest employers were the local school board, St. Joseph Hospital, Mount Washington Alpine Resort and CFB 19 Wing Comox.

During the mid 1800s, the Port of Comox was established on the slopes of the Comox Peninsula. The port overlooked the protected waters of Comox Harbour which was once called Port Augusta. This was an important and well-known port utilized for the ships of the Royal Navy and transport streamers.

There are miles of sandy shoreline both north and south of the this coastal town. This quaint seashore town has welcomed the existence of the Canadian Forces Air Base nearby. The region has also gone through a recent influx of arrivals because a lot of individuals are choosing to settle within the southern region of Vancouver Island.

There are many visible Vancouver Island's ranges and glaciers just up island towards the city of Campbell River. Among the more popular views consist of the Forbidden Plateau, Mount Washington and Comox Glacier. It is a serene drive because the highway sweeps past some well-kept farmland.

With such a moderate type of weather and the abundance of year round recreational activities such as swimming and sailing and golfing, along with the amenities nearby, the city of Comox certainly lives up to its name.

Since the year 1942, the Canadian Forces Base has been utilized as a Royal Air Force base and has become an integral part of the community. CFB Comox has supported the community throughout its time there and has helped shape the city into its present form. CFB Comox's key responsibilities consist of maritime patrols, Search and Rescue operations, and naval and air force defense operations. In addition to the different parts the base plays for British Columbia, Canada and the community, CFB consistently supplies volunteers and equipment each time they are required.
