Moving to Quesnel

Hello, Quesnel.

Quesnel is located in the central interior of British Columbia, on the traditional territory of the Lhtako Dene. If you're moving here from one of the larger centres in the province, you'll be amazed by our home prices, and how little time you spend in your vehicle getting from A to B (to C to D). From hockey to soccer, aquafit to trail running, yoga to zumba, knitting to photography, live music to peaceful snowshoeing, there is plenty to keep you and your family as busy as you want to be in Quesnel. Here, we live a well-rounded lifestyle; we don't believe in working hard for a life you can't enjoy. We're friendly and approachable. It's in our nature to welcome you and your family, warmly.
