Ganges, BC, Unincorporated Place. Ganges is the major community centre of SALTSPRING ISLAND, the largest island in the southern GULF ISLANDS chain. Named after HMS Ganges, flagship of the Pacific Station 1857-60, it is located at the head of a harbour and was first settled in 1859. In summer it is a favourite stopover for boating enthusiasts. Besides a marina and commercial facilities, there are provincial government offices, a high school and a hospital, which serve the outer Gulf Islands.
