Welcome to Prince George

“The Gateway to the North”

"We are pleased to welcome you to the beautiful and dynamic city of Prince George, BC for the 2013 Northern Health Research Days and the 12th annual CRHRS conference “Stories of Rural Health through Knowledge, Research and Collaborative Action”.

Prince George is the place where roads, rails and rivers meet. Located at the junction of highways 16 and 97, the city is a major transportation hub located in the heart of British Columbia.

Our city is never still and seems to constantly have an event, festival or celebration to bring people together. In Prince George you will find top-notch theatre, arts and culture. Visit the beautiful campus of UNBC and discover for yourself why it’s been ranked “the best in the west”. From your hotel enjoy our 11km Heritage River Trail system that follows the rivers and winds through some of Prince George’s most scenic and historic sites. Take a short hike through Forests for the World or enjoy the sights of Exploration Place, The Railway and Forestry Museum or Twin Rivers Art Gallery.

Come to Prince George and not only will you find wilderness and wildlife, you will also discover all the modern amenities we can offer.

Welcome to the Conference!
