It has been designated a core city by the national government.

Run-of-the-river hydroelectricity hydro power station with no or only very small reservoir for storage

Run-of-river hydroelectricity (ROR) or run-of-the-river hydroelectricity is a type of hydroelectric generation plant whereby little or no water storage is provided. Run-of-the-river power plants may have no water storage at all or a limited amount of storage, in which case the storage reservoir is referred to as pondage. A plant without pondage is subject to seasonal river flows, thus the plant will operate as an intermittent energy source. Conventional hydro uses reservoirs, which regulate water for flood control and dispatchable electrical power.

The Klahoose are one of the three groups comprising the Tla'Amin or Mainland Comox. The other two divisions of this once-populous group are the Homalco and Sliammon. The three groups were split by colonialism into different band councils but united historically as the Tla A'min, known as the Mainland Comox, and K'omoks, the larger grouping of the Comox people, also known as the Island Comox and before the merger with the Laich-kwil-tach culture. Historically both groups are a subgroup of the Coast Salish though the K'omoks name is from, and their language today, is the Lik'wala dialect of Kwak'wala.
