Prince George

Prince George is rapidly emerging as the centre of business, education, health and culture for Northern British Columbia. The best part is that housing prices have remained affordable and commuting times are still measured in minutes! Wage rates fall above provincial averages and jobs are plentiful… careers are being made in Prince George.

Ten minutes in any direction brings you into contact with the great outdoors. There are 1,600 lakes and rivers, four ski hills, eight golf courses and hundreds of miles of hiking, biking and cross-country trails nearby for your family to enjoy.

And that's not all. Here in "BC's Northern Capital" people have always liked a heaping side order of urban diversity to tame their wild spirit. Take in some live theatre. Rock your socks off in one of Canada's loudest and proudest hockey arenas. Enjoy a quiet stroll through an acclaimed museum or art gallery. Or dance the night away after enjoying a delectable meal in one of Prince George's many fine restaurants.
