About the Comox Valley

Navigate is located in the Comox Valley within the traditional territory of the K’ómoks First Nation. Named the “Land of Plenty”, the Comox Valley continues to provide an abundance of natural beauty. Few places can offer the views of alpine meadows, forest trails, and beautiful beaches in such a close proximity.

Our Tsolum campus is just minutes north of Courtenay, BC on Vancouver Island, and home to our award winning Fine Arts eCademy and ENTER programs. This campus serves as the hub for our other blended learning programs, administration, and online learning throughout the province of BC.
