Hornby Island

About the Branch

We respectfully acknowledge that this branch is situated on the unceded traditional territories of the K’ómoks First Nation, who have been caretakers of the land since time immemorial.

Nestled against a backdrop of a mature and tranquil forest of every shade of green, VIRL’s Hornby Island branch sits in a picture-perfect setting. After 26 years of serving the community at the New Horizons Centre, the building received some much-needed love and attention in 2016.
