A public library, amateur and movie theatre are also available. Industry includes an established forestry industry, a mining sector and growing tourism base.

History : Stuart Lake is important to British Columbia history, being the location of one of the oldest non-native settlements in the province, Fort St. James. The first non-native to visit the lake was James McDougall in 1806. McDougall's explorations were undertaken as an assistant to Simon Fraser. Fraser and other members of his expedition soon established a North West Company trading post, leaving behind for the winter, a garrison led by clerk John Stuart, in whose honor the English name of the lake was given.
