Welcome to Fort St. James, British Columbia. Discover your history. Come to work. Come to play. Fort St. James welcomes you!
Founded by Simon Fraser in 1806 on the shores of beautiful Stuart Lake, Fort St. James is the gateway to a chain of rivers and lakes that traverse 400 kilometres of central British Columbia. The population of the Fort St. James area, including the municipality itself, rural areas and First Nations, is approximately 4,500 people. There is an established forest industry, a growing mining sector and a growing tourism industry.
Year round outdoor and indoor recreational opportunities include hiking and biking trails, soccer and ball parks, golf, fishing, hunting, water-skiing, canoeing, swimming, sailing and boating, alpine and Nordic skiing, skating, hockey, curling, snowmobiling, dog sledding and camping. Cultural opportunities include a Public Library, the Community Arts Council, an amateur theatre company and a movie theatre.
Few towns are more proud or more aware of their history. The Fort St. James National Historic Site, the ancient burial site of Carrier Chief Kwah, Our Lady of Good Hope Catholic Church, and the monument to legendary bush pilot Russ Baker are of great interest to residents and visitors alike.
