Outdoor Spaces and Buildings:​

Ongoing efforts to identify areas in the community where improvement is needed, specifically: walkability, number of accessible washrooms, crosswalk safety, snow removal, and sidewalk maintenance.

The Better at Home program in Quesnel has a small contingent of drivers deliver clients to appointments in Quesnel and to Prince George and back.

An urgent need in the Community is transportation to and from medical appointments, both within Quesnel and out of town, such as Williams Lake and Prince George.

We will be working on ways to secure funding for programs to support this gap in local services.


We will use this inventory to identify gaps in housing needs, create a place for the inventory to be kept current and accessible.

Food & Health​


One focus for the Council is food security; there are a number of ways this can be addressed. Meals services to complement Meals on Wheels, access to excess food grown by local gardeners, classes for seniors to learn quick, easy, and nutritious food prep. Please contact us if you or someone you know are in need.
