The District of Kitimat covers approximately 320 square kilometres at the end of the Kitimat Arm of Douglas Channel on BC’s northwest coast (see Figure 2.1). Kitimat is uniquely characterized by its Pacific inland coast setting. The Douglas Channel, one of BC’s largest fjords, provides a deep, sheltered harbour 140 km from the open ocean. The rugged Coast Mountains provide a scenic backdrop. The community is at the base of a valley more than 5 km wide, which continues north towards Terrace, BC. The valley and coast near Kitimat also contain tracts of flat industrial land at or near tidewater, a unique feature in a mountainous province. Other municipalities in the region include Terrace, Prince Rupert, Stewart, Hazelton and New Hazelton. Kitimat is about 1,400 km northwest of Vancouver, 635 km west of Prince George and about 50 km south of Terrace via provincial highways. Many Kitimatians depend on Highway 37 to access services and retail shops available in Terrace. Prince George also serves as an important regional link for Kitimat.
