A pioneering story of breakthrough engineering and world-class construction spanning two world wars, a depression and an era of economic prosperity in the province—one fuelled with hydroelectric power.

The Bridge River projects were the pinnacle of BC Electric’s achievements when Premier W.A.C. Bennett created BC Hydro in 1962.

Voices From Bridge River includes the stories of myriad inhabitants of the Bridge River and Seton Lake valleys, including the St’át’imc who have called the region home since time immemorial, the gold rush miners of the late 1800s and the Japanese internees housed there during the Second World War, in addition to the many individuals who constructed and operated the Bridge River projects.
