Hello, Quesnel

Located in the central interior of British Columbia, Quesnel is a vibrant community providing an affordable place to live, an opportune place to run a business and a welcoming community to be a part of.

We’re a city where community comes first, and nature lends itself to both industry and recreation. Our lower cost of living enables you to find and maintain a higher standard of living and do a little more with the money you make. From home to work. Work to nature. We don’t spend our weeknights in a commute; we spend them on the lake or watching live performance arts.

We’re thriving with opportunity. If you think of Quesnel as a forestry town, you’re not wrong. The forest sector is a major employer, but education, healthcare, agriculture, mining and tourism also play important roles in diversifying our local economy.

From the natural to the industrial—here in Quesnel we do what we love and love what we do. With major manufacturers, entrepreneurs and skilled professionals choosing Quesnel as their home base, a broad range of jobs and services are available in our community. Quesnel is proud of its skilled and versatile workforce. With wages that are higher than the national average, residents have the means to enjoy all this area has to offer.

Quesnel is a place where your business can prosper. Along with being located along major trade routes, we have a high-speed telecommunications infrastructure and exceptional business resources that can help you in relocating your business and assist in determining your competitive advantage to ultimately connect you to your customers.

Whatever your needs, we are here to help. We invite you to say hello to Quesnel and to join our well-connected, accessible and welcoming community.
