About Kitimat

Kitimat is a community of about 9,000 people located on the north coast of British Columbia. The community sits at the head of Douglas Channel next to Kitimat River. Indoor and outdoor recreation facilities and surrounding wilderness provide plenty of opportunity for an active, outdoor, coastal lifestyle.

The community was developed in the 1950s to serve the aluminum industry. Over the years, forestry and methanol industries also existed in Kitimat.
