The history and heritage of Northern BC is a rich amalgam of First Nations, trappers, miners, loggers, fisherman and settlers all looking to carve out life in the wilderness. 

Today the legacy of these early pioneers can still be found scattered throughout the region. Learn about the fur trade at Fort St. James National Historic Site, a restored Hudson’s Bay Company trading post and fort, or visit early pioneer settlements like Huble Homestead or the Walter Wright Pioneer Village.

For a walk back into the rich fishing heritage of Northern BC, visit the North Pacific Cannery, a restored cannery and fishing village from 1800. The history of the First Nations in Northern BC can be traced back over 10,000 years. Visit ancient First Nations heritage sites and gaze on weathered but stunning Haida totem poles.

Take a tour of a modern piece of history with a drive along the Alaska Highway, an engineering marvel, or learn about ancient history with dinosaur tracks at Tumbler Ridge. Many Visitor Centres have tour brochures and information that highlight local historic sites.
