A Brief History Lesson & Today

First Nations people of the Coast Salish linguistic group inhabited the area now known as Esquimalt for approximately 4000 years before the arrival of European settlers. The Township of Esquimalt began as an agricultural settlement and is now a vibrant and impressive community. The Esquimalt Harbour was used by the British Royal Navy in the 1800s and now Esquimalt’s Graving Dock is now the largest non-military site for ship building and repair on the west coast. It is also the largest employer in Esquimalt to day.
