vanderhoof

Incorporated in 1926, Vanderhoof has a total land area of 54 square km.  Nestled in the beautiful Nechako Valley, Vanderhoof is surrounded by fertile farmlands and kilometers of forests.  The presence of various levels of government agencies such as Canada Employment, Forestry, Agriculture and Conservation play significant roles in the stimulation of the Vanderhoof economy. A regional hospital, health care unit, dental clinics, physiotherapy clinic, financial institutions, seniors housing, numerous service organizations and affordable housing opportunities are available.

The traditional natural resource based economy has diversified slowly, but continues to be forestry, agriculture and tourism based. Solid growth in manufacturing with predominance of international exports from the local businesses and value-added wood products are helping to create a more diverse and yet stable economic climate.
