Description From Owner:
  • Dala River from either from the Haisla Indian word meaning 'in hand,' or from one meaning 'long way ahead.'
  • Gardner Canal - Named by Captain Vancouver after his friend and former commander, Captain Alan Gardner (later Admiral Lord Gardner, Commander-in-Chief, Channel Fleet).
  • Gardner had strongly recommended Vancouver for the command of his famous expedition. In 1860 Captain Richards, RN, named MOUNT GARDNER on Bowen Island after this admiral.
  • Kildala Arm - From the Haisla Indian word meaning 'long way ahead.'
  • Kitelse Lake - From the Tsimshian Indian word meaning 'people of the mussels.'
  • Maitland Island - After H. Maitland Kersey, managing director of the Canadian Development Company, who, with Louis Coste (see Coste Island), examined Kitimat harbour in 1898.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
