# Shaping A Northern Destiny

About Our City

Prince George sits on the traditional lands of the Lheidli T'enneh First Nation, whose name means "people where the rivers come together" in the Carrier language. The city's logo reflects this "coming together" in the way it depicts the confluence of railways, highways, and rivers that give rise of PG's reputation as Northern BC's service hub.

Today, Prince George is a city of 74,000 people and is the largest city in northern British Columbia. It is a community with assets that include a university and college, affordable housing, well-paying jobs, and comprehensive transportation infrastructure. Prince George's highways and railways, in particular, are complemented by an international airport and these vital transportation links connect local residents and businesses, resources (primarily forest products energy, minerals and metals), and agricultural products to markets around the world.
