Squamish Overview and History
Squamish (/ˈskwɔːmɪʃ/; 2011 census population 17,158) is a community and a district municipality in the Canadian province of British Columbia, located at the north end of Howe Sound on the Sea to Sky Highway. The population of the Squamish census agglomeration – including First Nation reserves of the Squamish Nation not governed by the municipality – is 15,256.
The town of Squamish had its beginning during the construction of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway in the 1910s. It was the first southern terminus of that railway (now a part of CN). The town remains important in the operations of the line and also the port. Forestry has traditionally been the main industry in the area, and the town’s largest employer was the Western Forest Products pulp mill. However, Western Pulp’s Squamish Operation permanently ceased operation on January 26, 2006. Before the pulp mill, the town’s largest employer had been International Forest Products (Interfor) with its sawmill and logging operation, but it closed a few years prior to the pulp mill’s closing. In recent years, Squamish has become popular with Vancouver and Whistler residents’ escaping the increased cost of living in those places, both less than one hour away by highway. Tourism is an increasingly important part of the town’s economy, with an emphasis on outdoor recreation.
