Mayor’s Message

Welcome to Smithers - a diverse, welcoming mountain community in a spectacular setting. Nestled between Hudson Bay Mountain and the Babine Range, our community lies within the traditional territory of the Wet'suwet'en Nation.

The heart of Smithers is the people who live here. If you're new to town, we encourage your involvement in community life. Meet your neighbours. Volunteer with local organizations. Support our local business community. Have your voice heard and participate in the decisions that affect you and your family.

If you're visiting Smithers, you'll find a whole host of things to do. From fishing for steelhead in our local rivers, taking to our local mountain bike trails or skiing at Hudson Bay Mountain, the opportunities are endless. Don't forget to spend some time strolling through our walkable downtown to experience our unique shops and restaurants.

Smithers is open for investment and supports its entrepreneurs. If you have a business idea you want to get off the ground, or are an existing business looking to set up shop in our community, please contact us and let us know how we can help.
