Success Stories

Big Canyon Rafting - Quesnel & Williams Lake, BC

Big Canyon Rafting, based in Quesnel and Williams Lake, attracts both residents and tourists with a range of whitewater rafting activities, expeditions and day trips designed for every skill level.

Big Canyon Rafting ensures safety is always the number one priority, while also providing customers the best possible experience on the Quesnel, Chilcotin, Taseko, and Cariboo Rivers.

Owners Julie and Tyler Dinsdale note that, “we have applied for and successfully expanded our tenure over the past few years to provide more options to our clients, many of whom return year after year.” With the goal of further expanding and diversifying their business by purchasing a new bus, Julie and Tyler obtained a loan through the Community Futures North Cariboo office.

The new bus enabled Big Canyon Rafting to better serve a wider range of clients, by providing transportation that feels fresh, and current. Heavily dependent on tourism, the 2017 summer season in the Cariboo region adversely affected the business, but Julie notes that the Community Futures has continued to be nothing but supportive during this challenging time. www.bigcanyonrafting.com
