Learn more about the possibilities of CoWorking in Quesnel at April 23 meeting

Community Futures North Cariboo has started a CoWorking Takeover Challenge

Business owners, freelancers and entrepreneurs have a chance to be part of the first CoWorking Takeover Challenge Week in the North Cariboo.

Community Futures North Cariboo is hosting a meeting Tuesday, April 23 from 7-9 p.m. at Craig’s Table. Anyone in the community who is interested in learning how the CoWorking Takeover Challenge Week will benefit them is invited. It is free, but anyone who wants to attend is asked to register online at

“CoWorking is a unique model that provides entrepreneurs, contractors, remote workers and aspiring dreamchasers a space to gather and work,” states a press release from Community Futures. “CoWork spaces can vary vastly — from roaming pop-ups to under-utilized space within an existing business to purpose-built spaces that provide a wide range of business services.”

Community Futures North Cariboo is looking to learn about how this model might work in Quesnel through a 30-day challenge that started on April 15, and their team is looking to partner with interested businesses that may have an under-utilized space or a unique multi-purpose space to participate.

Community Futures North Cariboo is also looking for community partners who can help spread awareness about the CoWorking Takeover Challenge Week.

“We expect a lot of exposure over the next four weeks, as this is a ‘first’ challenge event in rural CoWorking in Northern B.C., and we’re really excited to be leading it in Quesnel,” states Community Futures North Cariboo. “We would love your support to help encourage and promote an entrepreneurial ecosystem in our region. All we ask is that you share our project through your social media channels and connect anyone who would like to supply their space for the takeover week or those how would like to utilize it.”

The April 23 meeting will introduce this innovative project, and anyone who is interested is encouraged to attend to learn about what is coming to Quesnel and how they can get involved.
