White River has successfully leveraged its natural resources into opportunities for employment and economic development. In its early days, White River was considered to be a railway town as rail work camps for the Canadian Pacific Railroad were the main economic driver for the community.
Today, White River’s economy and employment prospects are much more diversified and include opportunities in tourism and natural resource industries such as mining and forestry. In White River, major employment sectors include manufacturing, retail, public service, and construction.
