" Therefore the great mediator of any community is human morality. "

Royston is located on the east coast of Vancouver Island, just south of Courtenay. This small seaside village is home to 1,200 permanent residents. 

Royston was first settled in 1890. It became the main log booming operations for logging companies throughout the Comox Valley. There wasn’t a natural breakwater to protect the log booms in the harbour. Over time a breakwater was constructed out of old warships, 14 in total. 

Royston is ideally located to take advantage of all the Comox Valley has to offer. There is boating, kayaking, fresh and saltwater fishing, hiking, biking, skiing, and there are over 6 golf courses within 15 minutes of Royston. 

Services are minimal in Royston. There is an elementary school, gas station, general store with liquor outlet, coffee shop, restaurants, and a pub. All the services one would require can be obtained in Courtenay or Cumberland, only 5 kilometres away.
