About Kitimat


Kitimat is a coastal community which offers the mix of amenities and services you would expect in an established and prosperous centre of 10,000 plus. Quality of life is balanced here; housing is affordable and economic opportunities abound. Our majestic setting is paradise. Indoor and outdoor recreation facilities and the surrounding wilderness encourage active west coast living.

The name was given as a description of the Haisla residents of these lands at the northern end of Douglas Channel. Meteorologists would agree that Kitimat's title is apt.
