Move Up Here
If you’re reading this, you are probably living somewhere else and considering a move to Fort St. John. Perhaps you’ve been offered a job and are wondering if you should accept, or maybe you will be looking for work once you get here. Fort St. John is British Columbia’s best-kept secret. We think we have the best of everything – recreation at our doorstep, affordable living, and big city amenities, all in a small, friendly town.
Here, you can spend less time commuting and less money on housing, and more time on recreation and really living it up. The average house price is under $400k and a two-bedroom apartment can be rented for less than $1,000 a month. Our standard of living is high: The median household income is $107,091 (source: Statistics Canada, 2016), which puts us first in B.C. and fifth in Canada.
