Economic Development

Already showing a steady growth, Fort St. John is planning for further growth, working with industry to create a community that supports new energy projects and other resource projects. We do this by way of a new state-of-the-art for rural health care hospital that opened in the summer of 2012; a new fire hall opening in 2013; recently adopted Development Guidelines; updated Official Community Plan; and updated Zoning Bylaw - all to create a strong resilient community.

Our facilities, trail system and park space are vital in our endeavour to create a community where nature lives, businesses prosper and families flourish! For your reading enjoyment, take a look at our Official Community Plan and Investment-Ready Community Profile.

You will see a community with vibrant growth in a resource rich region strategically grow and create a community of choice for those seeking to expand their horizons.

The City of Fort St. John works in partnership with the North Peace Economic Development Commission to encourage economic development projects that diversify and strengthen the economy of the North Peace region.
