Looking for CHEAP land in British Columbia, Canada.
By CHEAP I mean UNDER $1,000 acre)
Prefer closer to US . Inside a community OK
Really want to be able to build without a permit.
Can a person still get a dual citizenship (US/Canada)
by owning land in Canada?
Want to freely go back and forth between the tow countries.

You can't get citizenship in Canada by buying land.
You would have to be in the 'investor' category ie lots of $$$

Land is cheeper in northern BC
You may be able to find a community though! good luck.
You can still own land in Canada and not be a citizen you just have to 'prove' you are intending on leaving.

Prince Rupert, BC is about the cheapest around, it is also the rain capital of the world so forget any type of solar power, thermal mass heat, etc. etc. etc. Everything is so wet all the time, it molds. Gran Isle is a bit better but very remote...winter 9 months of the year....Kitimat - no rural land, only little postage stamp lots etc. Terrace is up and coming - you can get a house for $60 000 and land is reasonable - same for long winter though....wet and cold with little sun. That said, wood is free and a woodstove feels great after coming in from snowblowing the driveway every 4-6 hours so we aren't stuck. On the bright side...we love it here. Good Luck.

I live in NW BC and find it more "open".As my wife mentioned earlier firewood is free(free to cut down ,haul back home and split) The fishing is good and the wilderness is still wild.The winters here are a lot of freeze/thaw cycles.Farther inland is colder and not so slushy.We do live an 8 hour drive from a small city and 18 from a major one.This can be a good thing or a bad thing depends on your perspective. I think it would be challenging to homestead here but very doable. This area used to be called the",Anapolis "of the North. Even the islands in the Skeena River were planted.Our farmers market here in Terrace is getting better every year.Apart from NW BC you might get some good deals on land in the SE part of the province. good luck!
