Map showing location of Merville in the Comox Valley.

Merville is an unincorporated community in the Comox Valley situated between the City of Courtenay, and Black Creek near the east coast of Vancouver Island.

In the 1890's, much of the Comox Valley was the site of extensive logging operations, leaving the area around what was to become Merville open for the establishment of farming.

Seeking sites to grant homesteads to soldiers returning from the battlefields of France after World War I, the government opened the area to settlement with land grants to war veterans.

Named by ex-soldiers after the location in France where Canadians set up their field headquarters during World War I, Merville soon became a centre of local agriculture. Today, the area remains agricultural. Owing to BC's Agricultural Land Reserve, there has been very little encroachment of residential or industrial development.


Merville, and the Comox Valley in general has short, mild winters and warm, dry summers.  


The Old Island Highway, also known as the "Oceanside Route" ( BC Highway #19A ) passes through Merville about 10 minutes north of the central Comox Valley city of Courtenay, and 30 minutes south of Campbell River.

The Comox Valley has something for everyone: culture, scenic beauty, numerous outdoor recreational opportunities, mild climate and a relaxed lifestyle are all here to enjoy.
