Happy Valley, British Columbia
|Area code(s)||250, 778|
Happy Valley is an unincorporated settlement in the Western Communities area of Greater Victoria on southern Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. Happy Valley, which is located south of Glen Lake and west of Triangular Hill, had its own post office from 1896 to 1922.
The settlement began c.1860 when blacks who came to BC from the United States settled there. One account of the name says it was their singing which inspired the name, another says it was one of them, Isaac Mull, who conferred it because of his happiness at becoming a free man under British rule.
