Likely is a small rural community in the Cariboo Region, nestled in the foothills of the Cariboo Mountains. This area played a significant role in the Cariboo Gold Rush of 1859 when rough-edged boom towns like Quesnel Forks, Cedar City, and Keithley Creek had overnight populations in the thousands, predating Barkerville.
Between 1896 and 1898, the river was damned (Golden River Dam Quesnelle) to allow mining the Quesnel River bottom. As a result, the town that sprang up was eventually known as Quesnelle Dam. By moving the Post Office from Quesnel Forks in 1923, a name change was better suited to the town’s new status. John” Plato” Likely was a popular miner, so the name was changed.
Today Likely is a friendly rural centre with a population of around 350 people.
