Broughton Archipelago Conservancy was established as part of government’s land use decision in the Central Coast planning area. The islands and islets of the conservancy have been utilized by First Nation peoples for generations and are a popular marine destination for kayakers and pleasure boaters. The conservancy also protects important habitat for marine birds and wildlife, and adds to the area already protected by the existing Broughton Archipelago Marine Park.
The conservancy is located near the mouth of Knight Inlet, approximately 50 kilometres east of Port Hardy.

This park webpage may not adequately represent the full history of this park and the connection of Indigenous Peoples to this land. We are working in partnership with Indigenous Peoples to update our websites so that they better reflect the history and cultures of these special places.
