    Prince George

    With a population of 74,003, Prince George is the largest city in northern British Columbia and is the "Northern Capital" of BC. It is the most major municipality near the property. 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
    • Aluminum boat construction
    • Value added forestry
    • Specialty equipment manufacturing

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