Only one of BC’s boomtowns

July 31, 2014

The economy of Fort St.John, in north eastern BC, with a population of only 20,000 has slowed down in the past year. Several large projects will ensure the community remains a boomtown.

Ft.St.John is one of only four Canadian cities north of the 56th parallel. The city is the largest regional service centre in northeastern BC, servicing over 60,000 people in the region. Fort St. John is proclaimed as the Energetic City, which reflects not only the city’s large resource base of oil, natural gas, forestry, and agriculture.


Ft.St.John can look forward to development and prosperity with hydro and natural gas development activities driving its economy.
