Hixon Area Information:
Based on Wikipedia:

Hixon is an unincorporated community at the northern edge of the Cariboo region of the Central Interior region of British Columbia, Canada. It is part of Electoral Area E in the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George.[1] It is located on the east (left) bank of the Fraser River, and is about midway along BC Highway 97 between the cities of Prince George (N) and Quesnel (S). It was named for Hixon Creek, which in turn is named for a 19th-century prospector in the area, by the name of Joseph Foster Hixon, who found gold here on the banks of the Fraser River back around 1866.

Climate in British Columbia is influenced by latitude, mountainous topography and the Pacific Ocean.
This diversity causes wide variations in average rainfall, snowfall, temperature and hours of sunshine, sometimes over very short distances.
In general, however, temperatures are warmer in the south than in the north, and rainfall is heaviest along the coast and lightest in the southern interior. BC is a large province, and therefore has a number of different climatic zones.

The Interior Plateau: Because the Coast Mountains act as a barrier to the moist westerly air flow, the Interior Plateau (immediately to the east of this mountain chain) has a much drier and more continental climate. Summers tend to be warm and dry; winters cooler, but less moist. The southern interior, including the Okanagan, Similkameen, and Thompson River valleys, experiences BC’s hottest summers, with temperatures often in the 30°C range/86-102°F, and occasionally rising above 40°C/104°F. Kamloops, for example, has an average maximum of -1°C/30°F in January and 28°C/82°F in July, and just 279mm/11in of annual precipitation. Areas further north on the Interior Plateau (Williams Lake and Prince George areas) tend to have a moist, cooler regime than that of the southern portions of the plateau.

BC Home Sales Dip After Strong December

Vancouver, BC – February 15, 2018. The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) reports that a total of 5,306 residential unit sales were recorded by the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) across the province in January, an increase of 18.3 per cent from the same period last year. The average MLS® residential price in BC was $721,477, up 16.2 per cent from the previous year. Total sales dollar volume was $3.83 billion, a 37.4 per cent increase from January 2017.

“BC home sales dipped 10 per cent from December to January, on a seasonally adjusted basis,” said Cameron Muir, BCREA Chief Economist. “New mortgage rules requiring conventional borrowers to qualify at a higher interest rate likely contributed to the decline in home sales last month. The impact was magnified by a strong December as many households advanced their purchase decisions ahead of the policy’s implementation.”

Despite the decline in January transactions, the seasonally adjusted annual rate of home sales was 101,800 units.

Compared to January 2017, market conditions tightened in all BC board areas except Victoria, where the sales-to-active listings ratio declined from 46.3 per cent to 40.5 per cent. Despite this decline, Victoria remains in strong sellers’ market territory. Total active listings in the province were down 8.6 per cent to 20,901 units, compared to the same period last year.

Canadian Building Permits – February 7, 2018

The total value of Canadian building permits increased 5 per cent on a monthly basis in December.  The increase was primarily the result of higher construction intentions in the residential sector. For all of 2017, the value of building permits across Canada rose 10.4 per cent.  


The total value of permits issued in BC broke a string of consecutive down months, rising 27 per cent on a monthly basis and 55.5 per cent year-over-year to 1.5 billion.  Residential permits accounted for all of the increase, rising 51 per cent on a monthly basis and 60 per cent over December last year. Non-residential permits declined 17.5 per cent on a monthly basis but were 42 per cent higher year-over-year. Building permits were up 22.9 per cent for all of 2017, the largest increase of all the provinces.

Construction intentions in December were higher in only three of BC’s four census metropolitan areas (CMA):

  • Permits in the Abbotsford-Mission CMA  rose 167.1 per cent on a monthly basis to just under $80 million. Year-over-year, permit values were more than triple the value from December 2016.
  • In the Victoria CMA, total construction intentions increased 69.2 per cent to $81.5 million and were up 13.7 per cent year-over-year.
  • In the Kelowna CMA, permits were down 31.6 per cent monthly basis to $52 million, a 16.1 per cent decline from  December 2016.
  • The Vancouver CMA recorded permit activity valued at $976.3 million, an increase of 39 per cent over November and up 71 per cent over the last year.  For the year as a whole, Vancouver permits rose 14.2 per cent to $9.4 billion with all components except single detached dwellings posting increasing permit values.
