Live & Visit

The beautiful lake of Williams Lake is the hub for many recreational activities and a haven for natural wildlife.

Williams Lake is also the hub for forestry, mining and transportation in the central Cariboo region of British Columbia.

The City hosts the annual Williams Lake Stampede, which takes place over the Canada Day long weekend. It is also the home town of Rick Hansen, the Canadian paraplegic athlete and activist for people with spinal cord injuries, who became famous during his fundraising Man in Motion world tour.
