Two hours North of Prince George lies Mackenzie, a recreational and industrial hub of the North. Located at the Southern end of the largest man-made reservoir, Mackenzie has a population of over 3,900 residents and is a friendly, spirited and balanced community rich in history, but with an eye for the future. Mackenzie offers affordable housing and natural splendour that supports a balanced lifestyle.
While the main industries are forestry and mining, adventure tourism continues to grow. In the spring and summer months, activities such as hiking, camping, mountain biking, fresh water scuba diving and fishing will satisfy any outdoor enthusiast. When the colder months arrive, the remarkable snow conditions transform Mackenzie into the ultimate winter playground with ice fishing, downhill skiing and snowboarding, snowshoeing, and nearly forty kilometres of quiet, groomed cross-country ski trails.
