According to the 2016 Census Canada statistics, Prince George has a population of 74,003 residents. As the largest city in northern British Columbia, it’s also known as the “Northern Capital” of Canada’s westernmost province.

The city of Prince George came into being in 1807 as a fur trading centre, in what was then the homeland of the Lheidli T'enneh First Nation, whose very name means "people of the confluence of the two rivers."

With time, another fort was established in the area—Fort St. James—and it quickly overtook Fort George to become the main trading post. But thanks to the booming agricultural activity of the settlement and its proximity to the railway, Fort George bounced back to reclaim its previous status as the main trading hub at the early start of the 20th century. It continued to grow and develop over the ensuing years, due in large part to the many military camps that sprung up in the area, along with the barracks needed to host the soldiers.

Today, Prince George’s economy is dominated by service and education industries that generate employment for the majority of the workforce. This is mainly due to the Northern Health Authority located in Prince George, as well as the presence of a trio of renowned schools: University of Northern British Columbia, the College of New Caledonia and School District #57.

Due to the surrounding mountains and forests, forestry is another powerful economic driver in Prince George, with a variety of industries, including plywood manufacture, sawmills and a number of pulp mills operating in the area.  

Prince George has a subarctic climate, with only 3 months where temperatures trend above 50 degrees, but because of recent global warming patterns, temperatures are rising as the climate shifts steadily towards a humid continental one. Snow is a regular visitor in the area every winter, but the heaviest snowfalls usually happen between December and January.

One of the ongoing issues in Prince George is persistent air pollution. Because it is situated in a valley between mountains and home to a few industrial factories, the air pollutants have no way of clearing out and sometimes get trapped in the valley. The local government is engaged in continuous efforts to address this effect and improve overall air quality.

Demographics

Before becoming a resident of Prince George, take some time to check out the data collected by Census Canada for an overview of the city’s demographics. This will help you to unearth useful information, such as median age of the population, average income and family/marital status, which can help you get a clear picture of the city’s makeup and what it is all about. It’s another reliable tool for helping you to determine if the city is right for you and your family.

Local Scoop

Prince George is known as the “City in Nature” because of the abundance of outdoor activities to be found in all seasons, and also because of the many parks located along its perimeter. Many of these are clustered beside the banks of the Fraser River and Nechako River, idyllic areas where you can find hundreds of residents and families spending time together, strolling along the scenic walking trails, having picnics and enjoying the natural local beauty.

If you’re up for a fun (and tasty) outdoor activity, you can head into the local forests for a day of picking wild bunchberries, rose hips, blueberries, huckleberries, cranberries, chokecherries, strawberries, raspberries, saskatoons, currants, gooseberries, and soapberries (from which "Indian ice cream" is made).

For all the hikers out there, Prince George has an extensive riverfront system of urban hiking trails called the Heritage Trails. With a choice of long trails (11+km), medium trails (4 to 10km), and short ones of up to 4 km, there are options for hikers of all ages and abilities. The trails are equipped with convenient amenities such as outdoor washrooms, playgrounds, boat and canoe launches, and more.

Winter activities are definitely not something that Prince George lacks. During snowfalls, you can head over to the Hart Highlands Ski Hill for a full day (or night) of skiing and snowboarding. It’s equipped with 2 T-bars and a rope tow, making it ideal not only for experienced skiers and snowboarders but also for beginners.

If you’re in the area during August, The British Columbia Northern Exhibition, also known as the BCNE, is something you shouldn’t miss. Established in 1912 as the Prince George Exhibition (the name was updated in 2012), it’s one of the largest and longest-running events in the area. It lasts for four days and includes multiple attractions for every age and taste: a large midway, food fair, trade show, art and horticulture exhibitions, 4-H exhibitions, firefighter competitions, and many other engaging attractions.
