Pemberton, BC

Pemberton is a picturesque community located in the Pemberton Valley of British Columbia. . Pemberton is located on Highway 99, the very scenic Sea-to-Sky Highway, about 30 km north of Whistler, 150 km north of Vancouver, and from the north end, about 100 km west of Lillooet, and 185 km west of Cache Creek (on the Trans-Canada Highway #1 main route).The population of Pemberton is about 2,500 people.

Nestled between the Coast Mountain Range and the fertile farmlands of the Pemberton Valley, the town is surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty. The valley produces a variety of crops, including potatoes, other vegetables, and hay.

Pemberton attracts many outdoor enthusiasts, offering hiking, mountain biking, fishing, horseback riding, and backcountry exploration, as well as fishing and rafting on the Lillooet .

Pemberton History

The area around Pemberton has a long history of Indigenous occupation by the Stl’atl’imx people, whose traditional territory extends throughout the southwestern interior of British Columbia.

European explorers and fur traders from the Hudson’s Bay Company, began to explore the Pemberton area in the 1800s, and found the rugged terrain challenging to navigate.

The development of Pemberton gained momentum with the construction of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway (later part of BC Rail) around 1912-1920, which contributed to the growth of the Pemberton Valley as an agricultural hub and to the growth of the forestry industry. The area was also connected to the Vancouver area by a gravel road along the coastline and Lillooet River.

The construction of the Sea-to-Sky Highway (Highway 99) in 1942 further improved transportation links, connecting Pemberton to Vancouver.
