With Hudson Bay Mountain on our doorstep and being surrounded by the beautiful Babine and Telkwa Ranges, Smithers is the definition of a mountain town. Home to nearly 6,000 people within town limits and around 20,000 living in the Valley’s rural communities, Smithers continues to grow and bring a wealth of opportunity to work and play.
Due to the town’s central location in the northwest along with being recognized as a hub for several resource-based industries, it has earned the title of Gateway to the North. With mining and exploration, forestry, agriculture, and tourism being at the forefront of Smithers’ economy, there is ample opportunity for employment and growth within the community.
The downtown core has numerous boutique style shops and local restaurants that add to the small-town charm Smithers encompasses. Catering to its residents and tourists through every season, the town’s amenities provide quality goods and services, world-class outdoor recreation, and a vibrant arts and culture scene. The extensive activities offered by Smithers and surrounding areas include everything from top-tier fishing, to hiking amongst well renowned peaks and trails. The variety of lakes will keep you busy all summer, and Hudson Bay Mountain Ski Resort will keep the adventures going all winter.
