Founder and Patron  

The Quesnel Lions Club has directly contributed more than $320,000 to the Project so far, mainly through community donations, and is the largest single donor aside from the BC government.

Major sponsors

The BC government, through BC Housing, is by far the largest supporter of the project, and has contributed more than $3 million in the form of a forgivable loan. $300,000 of that is provided by the Government of Canada. BC Housing has also provided a very competitive mortgage to the project for the balance of required financing.

The City of Quesnel has provided approximately $85,000 towards the project by waiving development cost charges and, over the next ten years, a portion of property taxes!

The Four Rivers Co-operative (formerly Vanderhoof and Districts Co-op) made a contribution of $25,000 from its Community Support Fund in November 2016!
