City Of Terrace

Terrace, the regional business centre for the area, is located approximately 550 air miles northwest of Vancouver. The City is located on a series of natural flat benches, or terraces (hence the name) within the broad Skeena River Valley. The proximity to the ocean (approximately 60 kilometres - 37 miles), the low altitude (60 metres - 196 feet above sea level), and its location within the shelter of the Coast Mountains has created a natural "greenhouse" effect. Rainfall is less than half of that found on the coast and temperatures are moderate - warm enough to permit the growing of fruit orchards and specialty crops, including peaches, for those with a green thumb and some TLC. 

Terrace's economic advantage lies in its location. It is strategically placed at the geographic centre of Northwest B.C., and is the hub for highway, rail and air transportation routes. As a result, the City is the location for many of the region's business, retail, medical and government services. Terrace's market population numbers approximately 70,000 and includes the cities of Kitimat, Prince Rupert and Stewart, as well as the surrounding First Nations communities.
