Pender Island Facts

Residents of Pender Island are very protective of their ecology and environment, living by the mantra of reduce, reuse, recycle. The beautiful Mediterranean-like climate presents the challenge of conserving precious fresh water. There are a variety of clubs, groups, societies, and other organizations to suit all interests and abilities.

Coast Salish First Nations peoples have been visiting and living on the island for over 7,000 years, calling it Sqla-lot-sis or Homeland. Evidence of encampments and shell middens can be found around the island. Today, the Tsawout people have a reserve on their ancestral lands at Hay Point on South Pender.

Explorers from Spain and Great Britain traveled through the Gulf Islands during the 1700s, but did not settle. In 1791, a Spanish expedition visited Pender and named it Ysla de San Eusevio. The islands were officially named by Captain Richards for Staff Commander, later Captain, Daniel Pender, RN, who surveyed the coast of British Columbia aboard the HMS Plumper, HMS Hecate, and the Beaver from 1857 to 1870.

The SS Iroquois steamship, which served North Pender and South Pender, was first able to take a quicker and safer passage to Sidney on Vancouver Island in 1902 after a canal was dredged between the islands. This area was used by the Coast Salish First Nations for thousands of years and has a rich history. To further connect the two islands, a picturesque one-lane bridge was constructed in 1955 and is still in use today. One island or two?
