Economic Development Transition Strategy

Construction in Quesnel

Economic Development Transition Strategy

The City’s Economic Development Department focuses on activities that support business retention and expansion, resident, visitor, and business attraction, workforce development and attraction, and occasional sector specific projects. This Plan builds on those services by targeting initiatives aimed at economic diversification and community well-being. 

While each initiative is mapped out separately in the Strategy, it is important to remember that many are connected and support each other to deliver the desired outcomes to the City. Specifically, many of the activities supporting destination development also make the City a more livable community. Community marketing and the Regional Skills Gap also support Innovative Resource Industries. Meanwhile, a more robust agriculture sector and local food culture, supports tourism development and so on.
