Our quality of life is high and our business climate friendly. Chetwynd is a service centre for a diverse range of industries – logging, sawmills and pulping, oil and gas production and transportation, coal mining, wind farms, ranching and farming. Businesses located in Chetwynd have access to bulk water, a selection of heavy industrial, light industrial and commercial properties centrally located close to an airport, rail & major highways.
Recent announcements for increased production from local coal mines, the resumption of wind project development, steady growth in the Montney gas field and the resurgence in the local forest industry have created low unemployment levels. All our industries are recovering at the same rate, which has resulted in Chetwynd posting one of the fastest growing economies in BC.
When you aren’t working, take the time to enjoy the peace and serenity of our rural and wilderness areas, or, choose to stay in the community and take advantage of our urban amenities. Visit the newly expanded Chetwynd Recreation Centre. Go for a swim in the wave pool, a skate in the arena or work out in the newly renovated fitness centre, or try our new climbing wall, or throw a curling rock, play ball in the volley-ball court or, later in the year, try out our new waterslide and Skateboard Park. During the winter, skiing is a short one hour drive to Powder King Ski Resort or you can visit our mountains for an exhilarating snowmobile ride. Hunt and fish in the fall, hike, play baseball or explore our hiking trail system. Upgrade your education skills at the Northern Lights College or take advantage of either our French Immersion or High School Apprenticeship Programs for your children.
