With its solid tax base and financial resources, Kitimat offers a high standard of living and excellent municipal services. The community features air links to larger urban centres and boundless access to outdoor pursuits.

As the District looks ahead to a surge of investment in housing, commercial, and light industrial space, the new Planner will help the District live up to its tag line: “A Marvel of Nature and Industry.” The role will focus on completing planning assignments related to development permits, variances, temporary use applications, official community plans, zoning and special projects.
