Greetings from Terrace, the heart of Northwest BC!

Terrace is a fantastic place to raise a family and experience the great outdoors together. Home to world-class fishing and exceptional downhill and back-country skiing, Terrace boasts year-round outdoor recreational opportunities for the entire family, including hiking & biking trails, camping opportunities, white-water kayaking and rafting, and an 18-hole golf course that will take your breath away. You’ll also find a wide range of modern retail businesses, restaurants, and entertainment choices as well as a thriving arts community and the largest farmers market in Northern BC. Please check out the Visit Terrace website to see more of what our community offers.

Terrace is also the spot in Northwest BC to do business. Perfectly positioned to take advantage of the billions of dollars in major developments occurring in mining, green energy and LNG, Terrace is the location of choice for many established businesses and entrepreneurs. Boasting the largest regional population base in this part of the province, Terrace is the service, education, and medical hub of the region. Terrace is centrally located at the crossroads of Highways 16, 37, and 113, and our close proximity to three deep water ports, rail service, and a bustling airport all serve to connect Terrace to the rest of the world. If you have questions about what Terrace can offer your company, please contact our Economic Development Officer Maggie Hall at 250-615-4030 or email

If you've never visited Terrace, we extend an invitation to see what we have to offer!
