Apartments For Rent In Dawson Creek
Dawson Creek is located in northeastern British Columbia, with a population of approximately 12,000 permanent residents. Its major claim to fame is its location as "Mile 0 City" at the southern end of the Alaska Highway. Though it is equipped with an airport and major highway access, Dawson Creek is a small, friendly community offering many small shops and a farmers' market.
Dawson Creek's economy is based on four major industries: agriculture, retail, tourism, and oil & gas. The city is surrounded by the Agricultural Land Reserve which supports livestock, canola, hay, oats, and wheat crops. The oil & gas industry is largely due to expansion in nearby Fort St. John.
For residents of Dawson Creek, there is an art gallery, many parks, an annual Spring Rodeo, and a variety of recreational centres including ice hockey arenas, a curling rink, swimming pool, and outdoor ice rink. Dawson Creek, along with Fort St. John, hosted the 2015 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, which brought international attention and visitors to the area.
