Parking at the Quesnel Campus

Starting August 1, 2015, pay parking is in effect at the College of New Caledonia's Quesnel campus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Prince George campus has had a paid parking system in place for over 12 years. This change is being made in Quesnel in order to support cost-saving and revenue generation for CNC. All vehicles parked within the College parking areas must have a valid e-permit or have registered their plates with the meters. The only exceptions are vehicles with valid handicapped passes in designated areas and veteran plates.

Parking at the Quesnel Campus is operated entirely by Impark (, and they can be reached by phone during regular business hours at 250-563-8430 or by Fax: 250-563-9870.
