Hope is located on the bank of the Peace
River in the Rocky Mountain foothills of
British Columbia, 90 kilometres west of Fort
St. John and 66 kilometres north of Chetwynd
on Highway 29. Through the commitment, cooperation,
and participation of our residents, we are
a uniquely progressive and safe community.
Hudson’s Hope is the third oldest European
community in British Columbia. It is steeped
in fur trading history, dating back to the
late 1700s and the days of Alexander Mackenzie
and the Northwest Company.
The area is also one of the richest sites
of fossils and dinosaur footprints in the
world. The Hudson’s Hope museum fossil display
is the finest collection in the Peace River
area. Is it any wonder that the town mascot
is a friendly little fellow by the name Dudley
Dinosaur. The history of the area is represented
by artefacts from the early trapping, coal
and placer mining industries.

rivers full of Rainbow Trout, Arctic Grayling,
White Fish, Lake Trout, Dolly Varden and

of wildlife including bear, wolf, stone sheep,
elk, moose, deer and bald eagles create unlimited
ecological and sight seeing opportunities.
