Welcome to Natal ...

So far, we have found very little information about Natal. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Natal to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Natal, please Contact Us.


We aren't confident of the location of Natal, so consider the above location as an estimate.<2>

While the community is gone, the present day location for Natal is 4,180 feet [1,274 m] above sea level.<3> In other words, the elevation of Natal is about ¾ mile [or ~1¼ km] above sea level.

Time Zone: The area where Natal was located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time. The time zone in French: MST- Heure Normale des Rocheuses (HNR).

Note: If you travel west from Natal, you will leave Mountain Time and cross into the Pacific Time Zone (PST/PDT).

If Natal still existed, it would have been in the (250) & (778)<4> area codes.

Adding Natal to Our Gazetteer ...

As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.

Our notes show that the earliest dated mention that we've found for Natal was on a map titled Map of British Columbia (from Gulf Refining, 1925).

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Natal, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Natal - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Area code (778) is an overlay for area code (250).
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Natal) to Point B.If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Natal. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from NatalOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Natal. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 49.7309, Longitude: -114.8560    
<6>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
