Just where is Kitimat you ask well, I think Geology.com shows it best…
Kitimat is located on the West Coast of Canada at the end of the Douglas Channel. Boating and fishing are both quite popular here as the marina readily highlights with quite the assortment of water craft located there. We find it quite bizarre that we’ve travelled so far across the world only to find ourselves looking at the same Pacific Ocean.
We love how the town has been set up with loads of walking paths, playgrounds and zebra crossings. A lot of the roads tend to loop around onto a larger road which makes life so much easier when you’re the newbies in town. Kitimat came about in the 1950’s as a company town when an aluminum smelter was built here by Alcan. It’s the modernization of this smelter which brings us here and shall lead us to much exploring of the nearby areas.
