Q: What additional learning resources are available in the greater community?

A: Living in Qualicum Beach means easy access to the resources at Vancouver Island University (VIU) in nearby Nanaimo. VIU's Marine Research Field Station in Deep Bay, and VIU's Recreation and Tourism Management Program have particular relevance in our community.  The coworking space at the old train station (www.qbworkstation.com) offers alternative work and collaboration space with programming provided by Innovation Island for the region's growing tech community. The rurality of our region provides valuable opportunities to learn about sustainable food and agriculture.
