From the Chief Administrative Officer:  COVID-19

These are uncertain and challenging times and I hope you and your loved ones are well. 
With the appearance of the Coronavirus, we are experiencing new challenges and significant changes to the way we work, attend school and interact in community settings.  Over the past couple of weeks, the usual sights and sounds of people active in their daily routines have reduced to little more than a trickle of activity.   I am thankful for our community’s conscientious response to these circumstances.

As your local government, the Village of Fraser Lake is committed to our community’s health and function.  We have taken steps to ensure the integrity of community services such as potable water supply, sanitary sewer, garbage collection and road maintenance.     We’ve ordered additional supplies in support of these services as a safeguard to any disruption in the supply chain.  We’ve reviewed our staffing requirements to ensure we can sustain services.  

As circumstances evolve, being informed is key to our success.  So, when we learn of an informative and creditable source of information relating to the pandemic or Federal and Provincial supports, we post the relevant link(s) to the Village Facebook page and the Village of Fraser Lake Website.  Please click on the Community Tab and look under COVID-19 for more information.

 

Welcome to Fraser Lake - the White Swan Capital of the world

You’ll be dreaming in colour when you get a look at our rainbow trout, and that’s no fish tale. Welcome to the Fraser Lake community, where outdoor living reigns and the fishing is fine.

Head to the Bulkley-Nechako region of central British Columbia, where one of the largest lakes in the province is a stone’s throw from the shortest river in the world.

The Village of Fraser Lake is nestled in the heart of some of British Columbia’s most beautiful scenery. The area can boast of 170 lakes within a 50 mile radius and is the temporary home to over 1000 Trumpeter Swans, making it the Swan Capital of the world. It’s a playground of water and natural wonderland, where you can try your luck for trout or char in the Fraser and Francois Lakes, or the Nautley or Stellako River, world-famous for its fly-fishing and spin casting. An abundance of big game, migratory birds and world class fly-fishing, spin casting and canoeing, make Fraser Lake a fabulous outdoor recreation community.

Hiking trails begin right at the Village’s doorstep atop Mouse Mountain which resembles – what else – a large mouse. The extinct volcanic activity at Red Rock, Cheslatta Falls 59 km (37 miles) south and the pictographs along Fraser Lake are only a few of the area’s fabulous sights.

From its humble beginnings in the early 1900’s, Fraser Lake Sawmill (owned and operated by West Fraser Timber Company Ltd.) has evolved into one of the world’s most modern sawmills. Endako Molybdenum Mines was at one time the second largest Molybdenum Mine in the world. Endako Mine and Fraser Lake Sawmill employs the majority of Fraser Lake residents.
