Established on the traditional territory of the Lheidli T’enneh, Prince George is surrounded by vast natural beauty, yet offers full urban amenities and superior connectivity to global destinations. The Prince George economy is well-diversified across all sectors. Over recent decades, Prince George has developed from a mainly forest-based economy to a city that has a strong natural resource base but also supplies goods and services for a broad range of sector activities throughout Northern BC, within Canada and internationally. Prince George’s five largest employment sectors are: healthcare & social assistance, wholesale & retail trade, manufacturing, construction, and educational services. The traditional forestry and forest products manufacturing sectors have evolved to include new markets, innovations and opportunities such as bioenergy and hydrogen production. Prince George businesses have capitalized on the mining sector in the region and ther are currently 300 suppliers to the sector located in the city, benefiting from over $252 million in sales per year. The construction of the LNG Canada facility in the region, which is the largest investment in Canadian history, as well as the Coastal Gaslink pipeline, which passes north of Prince George has created opportunities for local firms engaged in professional services, manufacturing and fabrication, construction and transportation. The Prince George area includes the municipality of Prince George, the rural Electoral Areas A, C, D and F of the Fraser-Fort George Regional District, and the Fort George Indian Reserve. It is equivalent to Statistics Canada's Prince George Census Agglomeration.
