Live and work in BC


Located 60 kilometres south of Terrace in northwestern British Columbia, the modern port city of Kitimat was built in the 1950s for the Aluminum Company of Canada (Alcan). A planned community with defined residential areas and a centralized urban core, it is home today to one of the world’s largest smelters, a pulp and paper mill, a petrochemical manufacturer and a fish hatchery. Nestled at the end of Douglas Channel, a 140 kilometre fjord along the Alaska-Vancouver “Inside Passage,” Kitimat’s beautiful setting provides the backdrop for a unique mix of successful industries and a natural, outdoor lifestyle.
