Nanaimo is a town on the east coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. It is known as”The port city”. The city was formerly known as the” Axis City”, which has been attributed to its original design where streets radiated from the coast like the spokes of a cart wheel, as well as its generally centralized location on Vancouver Island. Nanaimo is also the headquarters of the Nanaimo Regional District.
Like much of the coast of British Columbia, Nanaimo experiences a temperate climate with mild, rainy winters and cool, dry summers. Due to its relatively dry summers, the Köppen climate classification places it in the northernmost limits of the Mediterranean Csb or cool summer zone. Other climate classification systems, such as Trewartha, place it firmly in the oceanic zone.
