About the Cove Centre

The Cove Centre shopping plaza is located in the commercial hub of Quathiaski Cove or “Q Cove” as it’s known locally and is Quadra Island’s main business centre. It’s conveniently located within walking distance to both the BC Ferry terminal to Campbell River and the island’s elementary school as well as other retails services.

Completed in 2008, the building is well constructed, landscaped, and cared for by local owners. It has large covered lit pedestrian walkways and paved customer parking with wheel chair access. All lease units are heated and air conditioned by roof top heat pumps. High speed TELUS business internet and cable is available.


The Cove Centre is 15,000 sq. ft. and features the Vancouver Island Regional Library, Quadra Island Medical Clinic, Royal LePage Real Estate Office, Insurance Centre, Café Kameleon, Book Bonanza, as well as 3800 sq. ft. of second floor office space. Other businesses nearby include the post office and grocery store.

Recently island residents developed and approved the Quathiaski Cove Village Plan which forms the basis for increased density and future development in the Q Cove area.
