Our History

From about 1905, Health care on Cortes and other isolated islands was provided by the Columbia Coast Mission of the Anglican Church. The Mission operated on many isolated communities, logging camps and First Nations villages using a variety of vessels including the 35 ft M.V. Rendezvous in the 40’s and the M.V. Columbia III, launched in 1956.
