Smith River is an unincorporated settlement in the Liard Country of far northern British Columbia, Canada. It is located southwest of the junction of Shaw Creek with the Smith River,[1] which enters the Liard between the confluences of the Toad and Coal Rivers.[2]

The settlement, which is located just south of the British Columbia-Yukon boundary, was the location of the coldest temperature ever recorded in British Columbia and the eighth-coldest temperature on record in Canada: -58.9 °C (-74 °F), on January 31, 1947.
