With its scenic views, strategic location and friendly people, Terrace is considered one of the best places to live and work in Northwestern BC. Located along the Skeena River within the Coast Mountain Range, Terrace is known as the "Gateway to the North" and is easily accessible by Canada's east-west road corridor along Highway 16, Canadian National Railway and the Northwest Regional Airport, the largest in the area with record numbers of daily flights and passengers to/from Vancouver and other Northwestern communities.
The City of Terrace and the Northwest region are well positioned to take advantage of the expected billions of dollars of major project development. This development was sparked by the construction of the Northwest Transmission Line from Terrace up Highway 37 to Bob Quinn Lake and beyond. Terrace is strategically located near three deep water ports including the newly developed Port of Prince Rupert. A host of high profile industry players including Kitsault Energy are contributing to the growing local economy by helping to support jobs and growth in our region, choosing Terrace as their home base and preferred place of business.
Kitsault Energy has recognized that Terrace is strategically located in Northwestern British Columbia to act as a service centre to their project and to assist in housing, medical, and educational needs. With a population of 15,500+ residents and housing and property values still very reasonably priced, Terrace is an affordable community with big city amenities and a small town feel.
