  • Community Information

    Surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, meadows and rivers, the scenic town of McBride is located in the Mount Robson Valley in northern British Columbia. Settled during the construction of the Grand Trunk Railway in 1911, the town’s history is tied to railroads and forestry. Agriculture, forestry and tourism form the basis of its economy today. The recent revitalization of the downtown area and opening of a new hotel attests to the town’s growth in recent years. A short drive from countless scenic wonders, McBride is a popular destination for heli-skiing, hiking, fishing and whitewater rafting.
