Cumberland Travel Guide



Cumberland is a small village of less than 3,000 people, located in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island’s east coast. The village was incorporated in 1898 and used to be a heavy coal producer.

The main attraction of this town is the old but still intact company houses and buildings of the Union Coal Company; they were abandoned after the coal industry of Cumberland faded. The other attraction is Cumberland’s Chinatown, which was once the second largest in the Pacific Northwest.
