About Sointula and Malcolm Island
Sointula is a small community on Malcolm Island located off the northeast coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. It was settled by Finnish immigrants who wished to establish a self-sustaining utopian colony. They took possession of the island in 1901 and named their community Sointula, a ‘place of harmony’ in Finnish.
Malcolm Island is 24 km (14 miles) long and 3 km (1.8 miles) at its narrowest point. A 28 km (17.3 mile) gravel road runs down the spine of the island and connects Mitchell Bay to Pulteney Point.
It is accessible by a 25-minute ferry ride but feels like a world away from everything as soon as you land on our friendly shores.
