The City of Prince George was incorporated on March 6, 1915. BC's "northern capital" sits at the crossroads of Hwy 97 (north-south) and Hwy 16 (east-west), and at the confluence of the Fraser and Nechako Rivers.
The city of over 77,000 (approx regional population of 300,000 ) is a supply and service centre for mining and forestry activities in the region. Transportation, tourism and recreation, health care, education and retail activities are also major components of Prince George's economic make-up. Its geographic position and strong manufacturing base connect it strategically to the Asia Pacific Gateway.
The area offers a lifestyle that is definitely worth boasting about. Residents enjoy affordable housing, incomes above provincial averages, and an extensive range of quality services, cultural and sports events including Major Junior Hockey (Prince George Cougars) and Junior "A" Hockey (Prince George Spruce Kings) and PACWEST Basketball with our UNBC Timberwolves. Recreation opportunities are second to none and range from golfing, skiing, fishing and hunting to any team sport you can think of. Local educational facilities include the University of Northern BC (Canada's Green University) and the College of New Caledonia.
