About Our Community

Tahsis sits at the head of the Tahsis Inlet, a fjord-like finger of water running 24 kms to the open Pacific Ocean. Tahsis is surrounded by breathtakingly beautiful wilderness and abundant wildlife.


Tahsis is a friendly and active community which is home to 500 year round residents and about 1500 in the summer. Tahsis offers very affordable real estate with the amenities found in much larger municipalities.


Most residents and visitors are avid outdoor enthusiasts, including many avid anglers. In addition, Tahsis hosts annual celebrations like Tahsis Days and Salmon Enhancement Derby .


Current and former residents take a keen interest in Tahsis history and are respectful of the fact that the village is on the traditional territory of the Mowachaht/Muchalaht First Nation. The Mowachaht/Muchalaht lived in Tahsis and in other settlements along the Tahsis inlet to Nootka Sound for over a thousand years before European contact in the 1790s.
