The ten-year Destination Development Strategies for this region were formed through an iterative, consultative, and collaborative process which started in 2016. This region includes three primary planning areas which are Haida Gwaii, Northwestern BC and Northeastern BC. This region is inclusive of Haida Gwaii in the west, Prince George in the south, and Dawson Creek and the border with Alberta in the east and goes up to the border of the Yukon and the US. The region includes over forty First Nations.
Tourism into this region of the province is strong during the peak summer months with Prince George, Smithers, Haida Gwaii, and Stewart. The key activities driving visitation are focused on outdoor adventure and Indigenous experiences. Those include heli-skiing, recreational sport fishing, and other outdoor opportunities. Notable highlights of this region include a UNESCO Global Geopark, BC Parks, and National Parks.
The area is currently in the initial stages of their Destination Development Strategy planning. We are working with our partners in Haida Gwaii to create a dynamic strategy that will lead to implementation.
The area has concluded their Destination Development Strategy and are working on implementation. A few of the key themes of this strategy focus on transportation infrastructure and hospitality staff development.
