Join the Momentum

We’re claiming our spot as a destination, a hosting community and a place to grow your roots for the long haul. Surrounded by nature, Quesnel is where a work-life balance comes naturally.

Quesnel’s economy is diverse and adaptable. Historically a forestry town, this industry continues to innovate and thrive with a sustained momentum in the agricultural sector. Tourism is also growing as we continue to leverage our exceptional locale and unparalleled opportunities for outdoor leisure.

Our community achievements in the last year include the revitalization of our main commercial street, hosting the Men’s and Women’s Provincial Curling Championships at our new 1,300-seat arena, park and playground upgrades, and working closely with Lhtako Dene on an Indigenous Cultural Centre concept, we’re looking at continuous transformations.

Our 2019 initiatives include new mountain bike trail development, a re-visioning of our downtown waterfront, and applying resources to support forestry sustainability.

The City of Quesnel has a series of programs to help businesses start and continuously improve here. Our Façade Improvement Grant is available to businesses to undertake restorations on commercial buildings and storefronts, while tax exemptions are available for improvements in industrial zones or construction on airport land, and additional incentives for construction.

Whatever your needs, we are here to help—so come to Quesnel and join the momentum.
