Hornby Island of British Columbia, Canada, is a Salish Sea island located near Vancouver Island's Comox Valley. A small community of 958 residents (as of the 2011 census), Hornby is home to many artists, retired professionals, small business owners, remote workers, and young families who share a love of rural island life. Over the past 30 years, the island has become a coveted destination and its population easily quadruples in size during the summer months. The shoulder seasons are a preferred time for hiking, mountain biking, marine activities, weddings, and retreats. Most people reach the island by ferries from Buckley Bay, Vancouver Island. A growing number of private boats also visit through mooring at the Ford Cove Marina or anchoring at Tribune Bay. The closest airport is Comox Vall

En ella reside una pequeña comunidad de 966 habitantes según el censo de 2001. Durante la guerra de Vietnam fue un lugar de refugio para los insumisos estadounidenses. Mucha de esa gente aún vive en la isla. En los últimos años se ha convertido en un destino turístico cuadriplicando su población en los meses estivales. Hay un ferry que conecta la isla con la Isla Denman y la Isla de Vancouver.
