Prince George is the catalyst of the modern Canadian north.

Located on the traditional territory of the Lheidli T’enneh, founded in rich natural resources and a proud industrial heritage at the confluence of the Fraser and Nechako Rivers, today’s Prince George values its residents, downtown and natural beauty. Its future will be shaped by the resilience, imagination and innovation of a 21st-century business community that provides every resident and enterprise the opportunity to thrive and scale. 


Prince George’s population has grown in the last year to 76,708 in town and 332,000 including the local trade area. This includes 55,000 skilled workers in high paying jobs contributing to the local workforce.
