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.

    Currently we have some high water in the Alex Frontage Road / Silverthorne Creek area with some houses that are affected. At this time, the impact is limited to water collecting in the yards of the properties and submerging Alix Frontage Road. No one has been displaced at this time due to flooding. District staff are carefully monitoring areas of concern for changes in water levels. The District of Houston would like residents to stay clear from dykes and riverbanks, and stay away from the fast flowing waters which can be dangerous. Under no circumstances should individuals enter any stream under a high streamflow advisory. In case of an emergency, residents should call 911 or Houston on call staff at (250)-845-8591. Upon request, sand and empty sandbags are available from the District of Houston.
