Village of Fraser Lake
The Village of Fraser Lake was incorporated in 1966 and is nestled in the heart of some of British Columbia's most beautiful scenery. Fraser Lake is located on Highway 16 and has a population 988 and serves as the supply centre for aproximately 1,700 people in neighbouring rural communities There are 170 lakes within a 50 mile radius of the village, which are the temporary home of more than 1,000 trumpeter swans, making Fraser Lake the Swan Capital of the World. Fraser Lake Sawmill (owned and operated by West Fraser Timber Company Ltd.) has evolved into one of the world's most modern sawmills. Another strong contributor to the local economy, Endako Mine, was at one time the second largest mine in the world. Endako Mine went into care and maintenance in 2015 and remains this way today.
