    Area Data

    Prince George
    The Nechako and the mighty Fraser Rivers converge, and less than 100 km from the province's geographical centre, sits Prince George - British Columbia's "Northern Capital."


    The area around Prince George is the traditional territory of the Carrier Sekani First Nations people, who made their livelihood off the bountiful rivers, lakes and forests of the region. In 1793 the great explorer Alexander Mackenzie explored the area on his first crossing of the North American continent. However, it wasn't until 1807 that European explorer Simon Fraser wintered over here and before long a trading post turned into a town. Originally called Fort George, after King George lll, the town flourished as a trading post and was officially incorporated as a town in 1915.


    Prince George is the fourth largest city in BC, and a gateway to the Great North by Northwest. For the urban folks there are all the cafés, art galleries, boutiques and museums that a modern city can offer.


    Prince George is the first stop on VIA Rail's spectacular Skeena route that takes visitors from Prince Rupert on the west coast through the middle of BC’s backyard to Jasper in the Canadian Rockies, with connections to VIA's national network of routes.

    History

    The origins of the name "Prince George" can be traced to the North West Company's fur trading post of Fort George, founded by Simon Fraser in 1807. That post was named for King George III. When the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway required a name for its new townsite near Fort George, it wished to keep continuity with the fur post name but also to distinguish it from nearby rival townsites, South Fort George and Central Fort George. It decided upon Prince George to honour the Duke of Kent. The popularity of the name was confirmed by plebiscite during the first municipal elections in 1915.


    Today Prince George is home to a multicultural mosaic that represents a broad mix of peoples from across the globe. Luckily, our local museums and historic sites allow you to get a firsthand glimpse into the lives of our ancestors. Visit The Exploration Place and dig through the archives, stop in at the Central BC Railway & Forestry Museum to learn about our industry ties, and drive out to Huble Homestead to learn what it was like to live without today's modern luxuries.


    For thousands of years First Nations have lived in the area around the meeting point of the Nechako River and BC's greatest river, the Fraser - a natural staging point for river trade and transportation by the Lheidli T'enneh people. Two miners from the Bahamas searching for gold were the first non-aboriginals in the area and were led through the Giscome Portage by their Lheidli T'enneh guide where they quickly recognized the importance of the Giscome transportation corridor.
