Chetwynd, BC

Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in northeastern BC, Chetwynd forms the gateway to Peace River County and is home to approximately 2,700 people.

Chetwynd Overview

In the early days, Chetwynd was used as an intermediary point of shipping during the construction of hydroelectric dams in the 60’s and 70’s before assisting in the building of Tumbler Ridge in the 1980s. Today, Chetwynd is a small town of approximately 2700 people, yet serves as a centre for nearly 8000 from the outlaying areas. Formerly called Little Prairie, Chetwynd's fields and flats support a plethora of businesses and industries and earned the Province of BC’s 2018 Open for Business Award.

When it comes to recreation, Chetwynd has it all – a beautiful recreation centre with a curling rink, hockey arena, climbing wall, pool, 4000 sq.ft. fitness centre, walking track and in-house restaurant. The community also boasts several kilometres of hiking and biking trails as well as fishing, hunting, boating and never-ending backcountry recreational opportunities in amongst it’s four provincial parks and two lakes. The Moberly Lake Golf Course is one of the most beautiful in the Peace Region and skiers are strongly recommended to make the hour and twenty-minute drive to Powder King Mountain Resort to experience some of the best powder skiing and snowboarding in Canada!

From eagles to mythical Greek Gods, more than 100 of Chetwynd’s chainsaw carvings surround the town, beautifully displayed as public art. The town is in fact home to the world’s leading International Chainsaw Carving Competition which takes place the second week of June each year and brings highly skilled lumberjacks and craftsmen and women along with spectators from around the world. Those who enjoy history will also find artifacts and nostalgic pieces at the Little Prairie Heritage Museum.

Chetwynd has its own local hospital and health centre, multiple day care facilities, pre-schools, elementary schools as well as a high school and college. The town is packed with restaurants from sushi to pizza, a range of retail stores and hotels.

Conuma Supported Events in Chetwynd
Chetwynd International Chainsaw Carving Championship

Food Bank Hockey Tournament

Conuma's Food Bank Hockey tournament starts the trash-talking and gets pucks flying for a great cause. Employees from Chetwynd and Tumbler Ridge compete both home and away for the prized trophy while helping ensure the food bank shelves in each community get stocked for those in need.

Tumbler Ridge, BC

As a UNESCO Global Geopark, Tumbler Ridge offers an exceptional quality of life with almost endless recreation opportunities!

Tumbler Ridge Overview

While originally built to service the Northeast Coal project, Tumbler Ridge is so much more than a humble mining town.  Comfortably nestled in the foothills of the Rockies, Tumbler Ridge is a charming community that offers an outstanding quality of life. The friendly locals are proud of their home and are extremely community-spirited.

Despite being one of the newest towns in Canada, Tumbler Ridge's history actually extends back millions of years.  When dinosaur tracks were first discovered in Tumbler Ridge in 2000, tourism became Tumbler Ridge's second industry. Fifteen years later, Tumbler Ridge earned recognition as an UNESCO Global Geopark and the town offers a refreshing balance of industry, life and natural heritage. The Tumbler Ridge Museum displays fossils, footprints and even life-size dinosaurs and offers great fun for kids and adults on it's guided tours to real trackway sites in the local area.

With a spellbinding array of trails and waterfalls including the spectacular Kinuseo Falls, Tumbler Ridge is an outdoor lover's paradise. Those who really enjoy pushing the limits can enter the Emperor's Challenge - a grueling 20km race up and down Babcock Mountain! Be quick though - registration spots sell out within hours almost every year.

In the summer, the mountains surrounding Tumbler Ridge offer hundreds of kilometres of trails and roads for off-roading and ATVing. In the winter, snowshoeing and groomed cross-country ski trails are laid at the golf course. The annual Grizfest Music Festival is a great opportunity to rock out and meet your favourite bands. In the winter the town has been voted BC's best snowmobile destination and skiing is just two and a half hours away at Powder King Mountain Resort.

For those looking for indoor activities the Tumbler Ridge Community Centre includes a 25m swimming pool, kids pool, sauna, hot tub and steam room, an ice hockey & figure skating arena, indoor playground, gym, curling rink, squash and racquetball courts, a library, and cafe.

The community of around 2,200 people features a medical clinic, large grocery store, a handful of restaurants, bars and hotels as well as schools and college facilities.
