History :

In 1906 Harry Morgan and his partner journeyed from Bella Coola to Ootsa Lake, settling in what is now known as the Ootsa Lake Settlement. The next spring pack trains followed, bringing other European settlers to join them. The community grew, building roads, stores and farms. By 1916 the first school was founded. The road to nearby Houston was completed in 1917, allowing more settlers and supplies to flow into the community.


In March 1952 the Ootsa Lake Region, including the communities situated around Ootsa Lake, was flooded to generate electricity for the new Alcan plant in Kitimat. Many settlers moved away, leaving a core of old settlers to remain close to their old homes.


Burns Lake is called the “Heart of the Lakes District” and “Gateway to Tweedsmuir Park.” The village takes its name from Michael Byrnes, an explorer in the area who passed by the lake in 1866. Settlers were initially drawn to the area by the promise of gold in the Babine Lake vicinity. The actual village was formed in 1914 to service the workers creating the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway through the area. The arrival of the railway opened the forest industry, drawing more settlers and creating a stable economy for the area. Cultural Heritage: Wistaria Park lies within the asserted traditional territories of the Sekanni-Carrier and Wet’suwet’en First Nations.
