Official Quesnel Travel Guide

The Quesnel & District Chamber of Commerce maintains a marketing partnership with Ronda Barzilay & Associates to produce and distribute the Quesnel Vacation Planner each year. This guide is distributed to Visitor Centres around the province and is given out to visitors, residents, and investors interested in Quesnel.

12@12 Lunch Sessions

Throughout the year, the Chamber invites business owners and managers to join them for a lunch session with up to nine other business owners, and three Chamber Directors and staff. These sessions allow us to connect with the businesses and gather information to help us shape our policy and advocacy efforts. Businesses are selected from the membership by random selection throughout the year.
