The Immigrant Settlement & Integration Program (ISIP) assists immigrants and their families learn about Canada’s systems and services. We offer opportunities for immigrants to develop English language skills, learn about Canada’s labour market, network and develop professional and social networks, and settle into their local B.C. communities.
ISIP services are for eligible immigrants, refugees and their families and are free of charge. Our services are offered in many languages.
Community Support: Giving Where We Live
Short Busche Auctions is located in Charlie Lake, BC at the junction of Mile 54 on the Alaska Highway and Highway 29 to Prince George, just 5 minutes northeast of Fort St John. Established in 2001 as a division of Short Busche Enteprises Inc., we conduct one spring sale and one fall sale annually.
We sell farm equipment, industrial equipment, vehicles, RVs, ATVs, household items, and just about anything else under the sun. We serve the entire North Peace with consignors from all nearby rural communities as well as Hudson’s Hope, Chetwynd, Fort Nelson, Dawson Creek, and beyond. We have attracted buyers from as far away as Whitehorse, and have an average of 800+ registered bidders at each sale.
We believe in hard work, customer service, and a job well done. We are members of the BC and Alberta Auctioneers Associations, as well as the Fort St John Chamber of Commerce.
Please note that all items purchased at our auctions must be paid for on sale day. We accept cash, debit, credit cards, and bank drafts.
