Welcome to the District of Houston, BC

The community of Houston is nestled in the beautiful Bulkley Valley amongst some of BC's finest outdoor recreational opportunities. Strategically located halfway between the hub cities of Prince George and Terrace, Houston is home to the outdoor enthusiast.

With a population of 3200 people, there is always room on the riverbank, lake or the many walking and hiking trails in the area.

The history of Houston stretches back to the turn of the Century with the expansion of the railroad through to the West Coast. Originally a farming community with the rich soils often found in valley bottoms, Houston has grown to become an industrial centre that exemplifies cohabitation with the farming community.

We invite you to come back soon and often.

    If you're looking at your phone, you can't see the road. Whether you're reading emails or taking a call without a hands-free system, using an electronic device behind the wheel is a dangerous distraction. When you use a phone while driving, you increase the likelihood of getting into a crash by five times - that's five times the risk of hurting yourself or somebody else on the road. Even though checking your phone at a red light may seem harmless, the truth is anything that takes your focus away from the road while in traffic presents a real danger. Not only is using an electronic device while driving a bad idea, it's against the law and can result in tough penalties and stiff fines.
