In this website you can sign into and then search the Cassiar Address Book for old friends, classmates, work colleagues, etc. who have checked in before you. In the book you will find their current addresses, email addresses and phone numbers, at least for most folks there.

You can flip through the pages of the Cassiar Photo Album for a wonderful trip down memory lane. You can discover some of Cassiar's history, read old Cassiar newspapers in the News Archives, and more. The website is organized into several sections, each devoted to a certain topic. The sections are "Home" (this main section), a "Gift Shop", "In Memory", "Cassiar (& Clinton Creek)", "Photos, "News", and "Trivia". Click on the section links above, near the top of the screen, to load the sections and view the pages within. Each section has its own set of pages and menu, just like you see here. I suggest you view all the pages in this Home section before exploring the other sections as there are many important and interesting pages here.

At this time Clinton Creek information is found in the Cassiar Section.

The Cassiar Address Book includes residents of both Cassiar and Clinton Creek, for many lived and worked in both towns.

Please help the University of Northern British Columbia to identify people and places in some Cassiar photos in their archives.
