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. 

About the Sointula Resource Centre

Since 2002, the Sointula Resource Centre (SRC) has been a local information and networking hub in the heart of Sointula. SRC is a non-profit organization offering numerous services to our community.

Our organization offers a wide range of services for individuals and businesses. We help with resumes and job searches, access to computers with free internet, assistance accessing and submitting local, provincial and federal forms and applications, faxing, printing and copying, youth employment and volunteer opportunities, a monthly newsletter with job opportunities and local information updates and community orientation to new residents.
