New Municipal Website

The District of Kitimat has just launched a completely re-designed website with a sharp new look inspired by the local community, its industry and the natural beauty of the area. Significantly more information about municipal services and operations is now available. Recreation facility hours, pool schedule, and refuse site hours, for example, are some of the things you can now check online.

On top of an attractive new design, the new website also focuses on improved usability.  It features a dramatic increase in online accessibility that is accomplished using the following methods:  text resizing; a high contrast layout for people with vision impairments; and a mobile style sheet for those viewing the site on portable devices.

We have also increased the site's functionality, and added a wealth of new features.  These include: a customized events calendar; interactive photo galleries; news archives; enhanced search functionality; RSS feeds; and a made-to-order Kitimat Municipal Code document directory.

To facilitate frequent and easy updates, the site is driven by an enterprise-level content management system which will help ensure that the website is always up-to-date with the latest information about Kitimat and items of interest to our residents, local businesses, and everyone else interested in our community.
