Nelson, BC

Nelson is a city that possesses incredible charm and character. A place where life is unhurried and people say “hello” to strangers. If you end up in Nelson, you’ll find yourself in a world-class recreational playground in a pristine setting, all with the comforts of urban amenities.

Nelson sits on the west arm of Kootenay Lake nestled into the rugged Selkirk Mountains, halfway between Vancouver and Calgary. It’s a half hour drive to Castlegar, and a 1 hour drive to Trail. Nelson is situated on the junction of provincial Highway 3A and highway 6.

Traditionally the economy has been resourced based (Forestry and Mining). It is also the provincial administrative center for the Kootenays, with many regional and district offices of the provincial government as well as Federal offices. Nelson has a diverse infrastructure and development is at a high. With the largest areas of growth in education and small to medium sized businesses, Nelson is looking to attract high tech industry, education, tourism, value-added manufacturing, light industry, and other areas of technology. For more information on investing in Nelson, visit Invest Kootenay.

Thanks to the mild climate and the four near perfect seasons, Nelson is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. The terrain and abundant snow make for amazing skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling and snowshoeing. For world class alpine skiing, visit White Water Ski Resort. In the spring, that same playground gets taken over by other great recreational activities.


You can go golfing at Granite Pointe, or try Balfour Golf Course roughly half an hour away. You can enjoy Kootenay Lake fishing at your doorstep and there are many mountain biking trails all around. Set up camp at Valhalla Provincial Park and go mountain climbing at Gimli Peak. Kokanee Creek Provincial Park, and Champion Lakes Provincial Park are two great places to take the family camping for the weekend.

The natural beauty and heritage buildings of Nelson have been attracting artists for years. Thanks to these talented individuals, Nelson has earned the title of the number one small arts town in Canada. You can find local art any time of the year, not just in galleries, but also venues where visual art is displayed. Performing arts and music prospers among the theatres, bars and restaurants. The heritage Capitol Theatre brings in performers from far and wide to complement the local talent. Art has made Nelson a vibrant thriving community that’s happy to entertain, any time of the year.

It offers extremely unique shopping opportunities, and has excellent educational facilities both private and public such as Selkirk College which is the home to the Kootenay School of Arts. It simply has it all. Whether you’re heading out for an off-road adventure, lounging by the lake, or visiting the Community Complex for a workout, you’ll never be bored in Nelson. Be warned: Once you’re here, you may never want to leave.
