Douglas Channel
Douglas Channel was named for Sir James Douglas.1 It is a narrow passage on British Columbia's north coast that stretches from Kitimat to the Tsimshian community Hartley Bay.2 The channel allows deep-water vessels to access the aluminum smelter and other industrial sites in Kitimat.3 The Haisla First Nation community resided in the interior areas of the channel before moving to the Kitamaat Village.4
