Community Carved By Success.

The District of Chetwynd is located in the foothills of the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains. It is British Columbia’s entrance to the mighty Peace River Country. Located at the junction of Highways 97 and 29 and the CN Rail mainline. Chetwynd is the natural transportation hub of the Peace River area.

Chetwynd has a population of about 3,100 with a trading area of about 7,000 people. When not hard at work, the people of Chetwynd enjoy an excellent recreation complex with a wave pool, team-sized hot tub, sauna, six-sheet curling rink, ice arena and library. The four seasons combined with virgin forests, rolling hills, snow-capped mountains, undulating fields and crystal clear lakes and rivers make Chetwynd a playground for the nature lover and outdoor enthusiast. Good schools, playgrounds and fields make Chetwynd a terrific place to live and raise your family.
