Pender Island is one of the Southern Gulf Islands located in the Strait of Georgia, British Columbia, Canada.

Pender Island is approximately 34 km² (13.1 sq mi) in area and is home to about 2,500 permanent residents, 
as well as a large seasonal population.

As part of the Southern Gulf Islands, Pender Island enjoys a sub-Mediterranean climate and features 
open farmland, rolling forested hills, several lakes and small mountains, as well as many coves and beaches.

Pender Island consists of two islands, North Pender and South Pender, which are separated by a narrow 
canal originally dredged in 1903. 

In 1955 the islands were connected by a one lane bridge, as it remains today.

Most of the population and services reside on North Pender Island, with the highest concentration surrounding 
Magic Lake.

South Pender Island is generally more rural, but features the popular Poets Cove Resort and Spa, 
formerly known as Bedwell Harbour Island Resort.

The islands, along with Pender Harbour, were named by Captain George Henry Richards for Staff Commander, 
later Captain, Daniel Pender, Royal Navy who surveyed the coast of British Columbia aboard the Plumper, 
the HMS Hecate and the Beaver Steamship from 1857 to 1870.
