HISTORY

The town of Chetwynd was once known as Little Prairie.  However, with the expansion of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway through the town in 1957, the town’s name was changed to Chetwynd in honor of the Minister of Railroads, Ralph Chetwynd.

The town was connected to the Southern Interior of British Columbia for vehicular passengers in 1952 when the John Hart Highway from Prince George to Dawson Creek was completed.  The construction of the railway and highway through Chetwynd solidified the town as a major transportation hub and jumping off point for Northern British Columbia.

Canfor and West Fraser Timber Products purchased sawmills in town in 1964 and 1971 respectively.  These two companies rapidly became the town’s largest employers and continue to provide ongoing economic growth for the municipality.  Forestry and timber refinement continue to be a major source of economic activity for the region along with oil/gas and ranching.
