Fort St. John is “the energetic city” for good reason. The title reflects not only our large resource base of oil, natural gas, forestry and agriculture, but also the vitality of our residents who are, on average, 8.8 years younger than the average population in the res of the province. Modern day pioneers continue to bring a fresh spirit of exploration, innovation and connection to community within our city.
