The University of Kitimat (UofK) is the second oldest in the country. It was charted by Royal decree in 1885, the first classes were held in huts next to the railway station. The construction of the campus started in 1908, stopped in 1912 because of the war, and resumed in 1915. The campus opened officially in 1917. Set in Yellowhead Point, it is considered one of the most beautiful campuses in the country. The university is well known for its engineering degree; more than half of the countries are UofK graduates.

Population is aging, jobs are scarce, and the economy is bad. There are multiple obstacles facing this small farming and logging community

Welcome to Denman Island,

This small dormant town has kept its charm. Local residents are opposed to all big developments. A huge ecotourism resort was going to change the face of this island. Cypress National Park was created to protect the forest. A small camping ground exist for the joy of backpackers.

To start a small glimpse of one of the towns in this beautiful rain forest coast.

Wikaninish Bay

This town is a farming hub for the principality.

Logging is an important industry here, the extensive rain forest offers endless possibilities.

wikaninishbayjan2907134.png

The mills on the southern shores of the Bay transform logs into semi finished wood product that are shipped by train to local indutries or to seaports for exports

Thanks for checking this out and let me know what you think. I am open for suggestions as well to improve it.
