Fort St. John

 

Located at Mile 47, Fort St. John is part of the Peace River Regional District and is one of the largest cities along the Alaska Highway. It was established in 1794, one year after Sir Alexander Mackenzie discovered the area, as a trading post and is the oldest European established settlement in British Columbia.  The community has been moved multiple times since it’s creation, and it’s believed that it’s location today is it’s sixth.  It was previously named Rocky Mountain House and was renamed in 1821 when the Hudson’s Bay Company purchased the town from the North West Company.  Approximately 18,600 people reside in Fort St. John and work primarily in the farming industry as well as the oil and gas industry.  Of the BC Provincial Parks that we operate, Charlie Lake and Beatton are within close proximity.
