As the heart of the Peace River region, the City of Fort St. John offers a high standard of living, abundant amenities and boundless wilderness. With a population of approximately 21,000, the city is the largest community in northeast BC and the second largest community north of Kamloops. The lifestyle is second to none, with literally a non-existent commute to work, you can spend more time with family and friends. If the outdoors isn’t your thing, they have remarkable indoor amenities that rival anything a larger community has.
