Welcome to Burns Lake
Burns Lake is located in the heart of northern British Columbia, about 222 km west of Prince George on Highway 16. The village has a diverse population of 3,614 residents and serves a surrounding area of approximately 10,000 residents of the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako. With two of the six local First Nations communities located within municipal boundaries, Burns Lake has a strong sense of culture and incredible local talents to showcase.
During the winter, Olympic quality cross-country skiing trails and facilities draw in competitors and recreational skiers from across the province. Snowshoe enthusiasts can follow in their tracks too. Additionally, Burns Lake is a snowmobiler’s paradise, with vast wilderness trails near town.
Living amidst nature does not preclude us from full access to healthcare facilities, schools, and post secondary education. Our local airport is a top notch destination for the recreational pilot.
