Chemainus BC is located on the East Coast of Vancouver Island in Canada. Originally a town built on the logging industry, the towns mills closed in the early 1980's precipitating changes for the town if it wished to survive. Having reinvented itself as a quaint tourist town, and destination for locals who enjoy partaking in the wonders of West Coast living in Canada, this town now thrives. 39 murals were painted on various buildings in the town and form the basis for a now thriving tourist destination.
