Prince George Citizen building in 1916

The Citizen was established in 1916 as a weekly newspaper, and converted to daily publication in 1957.[2]

Issues from 1916–present (with a 12-month embargo) are now available online in the Prince George Newspapers database, an ongoing collaborative library project.

Along with several other small British Columbia dailies, The Prince George Citizen was one of the last Canadian properties to be held by Hollinger Inc., the media conglomerate owned by Conrad Black. Hollinger sold its remaining Canadian holdings to Vancouver-based Glacier Ventures International, later called Glacier Media, in 2006.[3]
