Pouce Coupe Part of the BC Adventure Network. Over a million web site visitors annually !

Pouce Coupe is the oldest municipality in the Peace River, it was incorporated in 1932, but the first European settler, Hector Tremblay arrived here in 1898. He cut trails south to Grande Prairie, Alberta and north to Fort St. John. More settlers came to this region after 1911, when the Edson Trail (from Edson, Alberta) was cut through some 400km (248mi) of wilderness. In 1930, the Northern Alberta Railway reached Pouce Coupe. Today, it's a quiet little community that sits overlooking the Pouce Coupe River surrounded by rolling hills and crop laden fields.
