Welcome to the Town of Gibsons

UPDATE – The George

A team of geotech investigators and specialized drilling rig(s) will be working on, and adjacent to, the site of the proposed George Hotel to conduct exploratory drilling tests and analysis. The work will be starting Friday, April 11, 2014.

The tests are part of further geotechnical investigations required by the Town of Gibsons to ensure the proposed development does not negatively impact the aquifer. Staff and the Town’s consultant on aquifer issues, Waterline Resources Inc., have reviewed the proposed drilling plans and will be monitoring the work.

If you have any questions regarding this work, please contact Dave Newman, Director of Engineering at the Town of Gibsons, at 604-886-2274 or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

my Health my Community

Everyone knows we are what we eat, but our health and well-being are also closely linked to where we live and what we do. Understanding exactly how these factors impact one another is at the heart of My Health My Community, a new web-based health and wellness survey developed by Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH), Fraser Health (FH) and the UBC Faculty of Medicine's eHealth Strategy Office. For more information about My Health My Community and to access the survey, go to  http://www.myhealthmycommunity.org/. Thank you!
