View of Chetwynd from Mount Baldy in the fall

Chetwynd is a diverse, family oriented community with a thriving economy based on the forest, oil and gas, and mining industries. As the front door to back country of BC’s northeast, Chetwynd is one hour or less away from four provincial parks, Powder King Ski Resort, world class snowmobiling, and hiking.

Closer to home, our small town has a vibrant equestrian community and a well-appointed recreation centre that has a climbing wall, weight room and pool with ice-hockey, curling, and swimming programs. New residents have the opportunity to make a difference where they live everyday both inside and outside of work. Come to Chetwynd and build your family village with us.
