Moving to Fort St. James

The unceded territory of Nak'azdli Whut'en is home to Fort St. James offering opportunities for the optimal life-work balance! Fort St. James offers wilderness and cultural experiences in a superb setting of lakes, and mountains.

We invite you to make our community your community!  Explore our heritage, wild backcountry, and the rich and vibrant indigenous culture.  Setting down roots in Fort St. James will allow you to camp or golf on the shores of Stuart Lake (Nak'al Bun), climb or bike Mt. Pope (Nak'al Dzulh), or go for a ski at Murray Ridge, within minutes of finishing your workday.  

Top FIVE reasons to move to Fort St. James!

Reach out to us at the District Office and we can help you get oriented with your new community. We look forward to welcoming you to town!
