Description : Stewart, BC is a small town big in history, nature and beauty. Mining was Stewart,s beginning when 68 prospectors came to the head of the Portland Canal in the spring of 1898 looking for placer gold. Although rumours said the deposits equaled those of the Klondike, the promised poor man placer never materialized. However, other gold camps, once attention had been drawn to the area, mining and exploration increased.

Stewart is on the Cassiar Highway at the head of the Portland Canal, a narrow saltwater fjord approximately 90 miles/145 kilometres long. The fjord forms a natural boundary between Alaska and Canada. Stewart has a deep harbour and boasts of being Canada,s Most Northerly Ice Free Port.
