Jade City is a "spot on the road" in northwestern British Columbia, Canada, near the Yukon, located on Highway 37, west of Good Hope Lake and close to Cassiar, in the Cassiar Highlands. The region around Jade City is rich with serpentinite (a jade precursor), greenstone (jade look-a-likes), and Nephrite jade. The region is home to

92% of the world's nephrite jade. Jade City is by road about 19 hours north of Greater Vancouver, and 1 hour south of the Yukon border. As of 2015, it has a population of about 30 people. Jade City is a very small town. The Cassiar Mountain Jade Store offers free RV parking, free coffee and free wifi and they also sell jade products made from nearby formations of the stone. During the summer a church opens up to the public offering Sunday services. There are no gas stations or restaurants here.
