Parkwood Southlands Commercial is the Fort St. John's regions premiere power centre for retail and commercial business. No other location in Fort St. John offers this kind of access to opportunity for your business.
Highway 97, also referred to as the Alaska Highway, was constructed in 1942 and operates as the primary Regional Arterial, connecting Fort St. John with the surrounding communities of Dawson Creek and Fort Nelson. The highway is British Columbia’s primary north-south corridor extending from the US border at Osoyoos to the Yukon Territory and beyond to the Alaskan border.
Daily volumes along the corridor vary greatly, with a large seasonal variation. A significant portion of highway traffic does not originate from Fort St. John (90,000 sqKM) and can seem to be regionally based within the Peace River Regional District (120,000 sqKM).
It is estimated that future 2035 average daily traffic volumes will be at 32,000 bordering the Parkwood Southlands development.

In Fort St. John, we are proud of our roots, and our long history in the Peace Region. Alexander Mackenzie was the first European explorer to document the area in 1793 when he passed through the region, travelling by canoe, in search of a route to the Pacific Ocean. The following year, a trading post was established by the North West Company, making Fort St. John the oldest non-First Nations settlement on the British Columbia mainland.
Just to the west of Fort St. John stand the mighty Peace Canyon and W.A.C. Bennett hydroelectric dams, which provide over 40% of the province`s hydroelectric power. At 183 m (660 ft) high it is one of the world`s highest earth filled dams.
Known as the Energetic City, Fort St. John is the service support centre for the province`s oil and natural gas industry.
Natural gas liquids (NGLs) are plentiful in the Montney Shale Gas Play. These include ethane, butane, propane, condensate, and light oil. The availability of these liquids increase the economic viability associated with the exploration, extraction and processing of the regions natural gas resource.
The region has rich metallurgic coal reserves with many proposed mines in Hudson`s Hope area.
The forestry sector includes a wide array of tree species that vary from spruce to balsam popular and paper birch. The majority of timber harvested from 4.673 million hectares of the Fort St. John timber supply area was processed by the pulp mill.
The Peace Region of northeast British Columbia has one of the richest wind resources in North America. The prevailing southwest winds blow strong and steady from across the Rocky Mountains and the rolling farmlands to the east. Three large wind facilities are now in operation: Meikle Wind near Tumbler Ridge at 185 megawatts (MW), Dokie Wind near Chetwynd at 144 MW, and Bear Mountain Wind Park near Dawson Creek at 102 MW.
These are all independent Power Producer projects, feeding clean wind power into the BC grid under contract with BC Hydro. The future of the wind industry in the Peace is bright, with over 10,000 MW of wind energy potential waiting for development.
