Quesnel is located in the central interior of BC, on the traditional territory of the Lhtako Dene. Our four-seasons, outdoor playground offers unlimited adventure and recreational opportunities at our doorstep, making that work-life balance we all want a little more obtainable.
Ride our new mountain biking trail networks in the summer and fall, then transition into winter at our family-oriented ski hill 44 km from downtown, or cross-country ski on 75 km of groomed trails at Hallis Lake. Spring offers fantastic fishing at ice-off and our 9.5 km Riverfront Trail, looping around our city centre and West Quesnel, is open and maintained all year long.
City of Quesnel | Bonnie GrenonQuesnel’s economy is diverse and adaptable. Historically a forestry town, the forest industry continues to innovate and thrive and we see a sustained momentum in the agricultural sector. In 2020, we launched Sprout Kitchen, a regional food hub serving the North Cariboo Food Hub Region, supporting small-scale food processing businesses. Tourism is also a growing industry in our region as we continue to leverage our exceptional local and unparalleled opportunities for outdoor leisure.
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 who wish to perform restorations on commercial buildings and storefronts, while tax exemptions are available for improvements in industrial zones or construction on airport land, and additional incentives are available for multi-family housing construction.
Whatever your needs, we are here to help. We encourage you to visit quesnel.ca/relocate to learn more about living and working in Quesnel.
