    Area Data

    Prince George, with a population of 84,809 (2022), is the largest city in northern British Columbia and is the "Northern Capital" of BC. Situated at the confluence of the Fraser and Nechako Rivers, and the crossroads of Highway 16 and Highway 97, the city is the service and supply hub for one of the fastest-growing regions in Canada and plays an important role in the province's economy and culture.

    Prince George is the dominant economic center of the region. Public sector and education based jobs dominate the municipality’s economy. Presently the Northern Health Authority, stationed in Prince George, possess a $450 million budget and have invested $100 million into local infrastructure. UNBC, the College of New Caledonia and School District 57 adds a further $750 million into the local economy.

    The city’s economy was once dominated by the lumber sector; however, the Fraser-Fort George Regional District has experienced extensive closures of the region’s lumber mills. This has been attributed to the movement towards “super mills,” a loss of supply caused by the prevalence of the Mountain Pine Beetle and US tariffs on lumber exports. It is predicted that mining exploration and development will soon supersede the lumber industry, as the dominant industry in Prince George and the surrounding areas. Additionally, Initiatives Prince George estimates that the Nechako Basin contains 5,000,000 barrels of oil, which could help diversify the region’s economy further through the commencement of petroleum harvesting operations.

    Presently, the city of Prince George has a number of private enterprises and facilities operating in and contributing to its local economy. These facilities include:

    • Two chemical plants
    • An oil refinery
    • Brewery
    • Dairy
    • Machine shops
    • Value added forestry
    • Specialty equipment manufacturing

    Prince George has a large regional airport offering daily flights to numerous major destinations.

    Hunting

    The ranch sits in Management Unit 7-7 offering hunting opportunities for whitetail deer, mule deer, elk, moose, bear and game bird species.

    Snowmobiling

    The entire regional district surrounding the offered lots is famous for its snowmobiling opportunities. Whether it is through the Robson Valley or North towards Mackenzie, ample annual snow fall ensures plenty of snowmobiling opportunity.

    Skiing/Snowboarding

    The same snow, which affords excellent snowmobiling opportunity, provides excellent slope conditions. Taber Mountain and Purden Ski Village are a short commute from the property. For more rugged skiing/snowboarding adventures, you may drive north to Powder King Mountain in the Pine Pass. A new $100 million ski hill has also been approved for Valemont in the Robson Valley, which is a short commute away.

    Hiking/Camping

    With all the surrounding Crown land and nature, the options for hiking and camping are endless.

    Gardening

    The climate and soil conditions are ideal for a large and expansive garden providing the opportunity to become very self-reliant from a produce perspective.

    Urban Recreation

    With Prince George so close, the opportunity to go out on the town is always available. The Prince George Cougars (WHL) always provide excellent entertainment. There are fitness centers, pools, restaurants, bars and everything else you could possibly need.

    History

    The origins of Prince George can be traced to the North West Company fur trading post of Fort George, which was established in 1807 by Simon Fraser and named in honour of King George III. The post was centred in the centuries-old homeland of the Lheidli T'enneh First Nation, whose very name means "people of the confluence of the two rivers.

    In 1903, Fort George's began to expand when reports said that the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway (later part of CN Rail) would pass near the fur post. In 1906, agricultural settlement began around Fort George and then in 1909, development of the town began as two rival land speculation companies built the communities of South Fort George and Central Fort George. South Fort George was built on the Fraser River near the Hudson's Bay Company’s trading post and Central Fort George was built two miles (3 km) to the northwest on the Nechako River. Both communities flourished due to the marketing strategies of the land promoter for Central Fort George, George Hammond, who advertised the community all over Canada and Britain, describing Fort George in glowing terms as being the future hub of British Columbia, having mild winters and being suitable for any agricultural endeavour (except for the growing of peaches). Ten paddle steamer sternwheelers serviced the area, coming up on the Fraser River from Soda Creek.
