The entire week is meant for residents to rediscover all that Fort St. John has to offer. Participants will rediscover attractions, businesses and activities that are available in the area.

Hill says many people don’t know that the Center can help plan trips throughout British Columbia and Canada.

She also says she hopes participants will become more knowledgeable about the City after the week is over.
