Galiano Island is one of the southern Gulf Islands between Vancouver Island and the Pacific coast of British Columbia, Canada. It is located in the Strait of Georgia. It has 27.5 kilometers in length and 6 kilometers at its widest point and 1.6 kilometers at its narrowest point. In the west of the island there are caves in sandstone. The island is located northwest of Mayne Island, northeast of Saltspring Island and southeast of Valdes Island. It is part of the Capital Regional District, and has a population of 1258 people.1 Named after the Spanish explorer Dionisio Alcala Galiano, who explored the area in 1792, the island is twinned with his home city - Cabra (Córdoba).

Today there is only one Indian Reserve on the island, located on the northern tip of the island and under the administration Penelakut. Industries were once logging, fishing and the burning of coal, 2 although today tourism and the arts are the most common jobs. Government bodies that oversee the island include Federal, Provincial and Regional District Capital and the Islands Trust, whose mandate is to establish the rules of land use to "preserve and protect" the island, especially on development. For most of the twentieth century, about half of the land on Galiano was owned forestry company MacMillan Bloedel. As a result, Galiano was not as developed as the neighboring islands. When the company sold its interests in Galiano, the debate on development issues noted, and the Islands Trust set minimum lot sizes to limit development. Local elections are held every three years to determine who the two Trustees of the island.
