The qathet Regional District is located on the west coast of British Columbia, about 175 km north of Vancouver, within the traditional territory of the Tla’amin Nation. Our boundaries encompass 5,092 square kilometers (666 square miles) and stretch from Toba Inlet in the north to Georgia Straight in the south and from Jervis Inlet/Hotham Sound in the east to Homfray Channel/Desolation Sound on the west. Within these boundaries lie a large mainland area and Hernando, Lasqueti, Savary and Texada Islands. With a population of about 20,000 we are one of the smallest regional districts in the province.
