The Village of Clinton is located 39 km north of the Trans Canada
Highway #1 and Cariboo Highway #97 junction, with an elevation of 887 meters. This active community of 650 residents, with its colorful history of over 150 years and its unique western atmosphere, was founded as a direct result of the "boom" of the Cariboo Gold Rush.
Clinton, incorporated in 1963, boasts of hosting one of British Columbia's oldest continuously running events, the Clinton Annual Ball, now held in May of each year. As a midway point between Vancouver and Prince George, Clinton serves as a centre providing amenities to both its own residents and visitors.
