Quality of Life
Pelly Crossing is home to 332 people (2012) who enjoy a quiet, laid-back lifestyle; and is home to the Selkirk First Nation.
Situated in a beautiful valley, the Pelly River flows through the community. Though it is a relatively small community, it has several recreational facilities.
A recreation centre with arena and curling rink, a youth centre with exercise equipment, and supplies for crafts and games keep the community busy.
Both hunting and fishing are important activities as well as a source of food. When the salmon run takes place, the village vacates and people move to their cabins, or fish camps, near the river.
The residents of Pelly are very involved with stick-gambling and the Tommy McGinty Baseball Park is a popular venue in the summer.
Pelly Crossing lies within a spectacular natural environment. Clean air and fresh water surround the town. Summer months bring with it endless outdoor activities such as, fishing, hiking, and boating.
