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.   Fraser Lake Sawmill employs the majority of Fraser Lake residents.

WHAT: The Heart & Stroke Big Bike is an exciting fundraiser that is ideal for community organizations, companies and groups wishing to support the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Presented by the Dairy Farmers of Canada, the Heart & Stroke Big Bike is one of the primary community fundraising events for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. This fun-filled event earned its name from the 30-seat bicycle teams of energetic riders who pedal through 200 communities in nine provinces coast to coast – raising awareness and funds along the way.

Teams made up of up to 29 energetic riders, plus a driver each commit to raise a minimum of $50 and pedal through their community in support of heart disease and stroke research. This year we aim to raise 8.55 million dollars. Through events like Heart & Stroke Big Bike, we’re transforming how communities think about, prevent, manage and live with heart disease and stroke.

Come and cheer on your local community riders at our Big Bike event as they help make a difference by creating more survivors every day! Please look for opportunities in Fraser Lake to donate to these two amazing teams.

Visit www.bigbike.ca to learn more.

WHEN: Thursday, June 18 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

WHERE: The Big Bike will depart from Fraser Lake Elementary School – 110 Chowsunket Street, Fraser Lake, BC.

WHO: The Spirit of Fraser Lake Community team and the Fraser Lake Retailers team will be participating in this year’s Big Bike in Fraser Lake. But we have room for a few more riders!
