Welcome to Quesnel

Quesnel is a charming city with an area population of about 25,000 people, located at the confluence of the Fraser and Quesnel rivers in the heartland of beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

As a business person, you fully understand what it takes to succeed. Entrepreneurial spirit, drive and a commitment to excellence are all critical characteristics of success. Let me assure you, that the City of Quesnel, both as a corporation and a community, embodies and fosters these characteristics.

We take pride in our City, an active, green and connected community that is keen to diversify its economy, culture and people.

As an enthusiastic adopter of sustainability principles and practices, Quesnel is keen to be an active proponent of responsible projects that consider long-term ramifications during the business planning process. We believe in effective synergies between business, industry, local government and the community.

Our lifestyle is enviable. Within minutes you can travel from our downtown core to some of the best fishing, hiking and wilderness adventures in the world. Our renowned Riverfront Trail system affords its users a superb walking and cycling experience while being able to take in the breathtaking scenic vistas of the Fraser and Quesnel Rivers. We also have a flourishing appreciation for arts and culture, while maintaining strong roots to our heritage.

We have an extraordinary community of volunteers who go to remarkable lengths to make this community an even better place. We're a friendly place, where it's hard to walk down the street without having someone greet you warmly.

People who choose to live, work and play in Quesnel don't regret that choice, as the affordability of calling the North Cariboo home is outstanding.
