Fort St. John, Cranbrook and Terrace are the only communities in British Columbia that currently add fluoride to tap water.

Prince Rupert's fluoridation system has failed and not been repaired due to a budget that is stretched thin with other infrastructure repairs that are needed to ensure that the delivery of water to their community.

Prince George and Sparwood, BC decided to stop fluoridating in 2014.

Williams Lake ended the practice in 2011.
Kamloops stopped fluoridating in 2001.

From 1955 to 1975, a total of 21 communities in British Columbia began adding fluoride to their local tap water. For instance, Prince George added fluoride to its water from 1955 through 2014. Since 1975 no new B.C. communities have begun the practice of adding fluoride.

Fluoride is NOT added to water in Metro Vancouver, Vancouver Island or the Okanagan.

The results of community referendums show that the general public in British Columbia does not favour the addition of fluoride to our drinking water.
