Biography / Administrative history
The West Coast Agency in British Columbia was established by Order-in-Council, 3 April 1881. The agency headquarters was located at the following sites: Alberni (1882), Ucluelet (1885-1886), Alberni (1895-1916), and Port Alberni (1938-1969). The West Coast Agency was divided on 1 April 1970, with the southern portion of the Agency becoming part of the new South Island District and the northern portion becoming part of the new North Island District office. The Nanaimo District Office was established in January 1976 when the name of the South Island District Office was changed to the Nanaimo District Office.
