The Opportunity

Nelson is a vibrant community of approximately 10,000 people that serves as the cultural, educational, economic, government and health care hub for approximately 25,000 people. Some residents chose to live in a lovely Heritage home within blocks of lively Baker Street. Others choose the expansive lake and mountain views from the top of the city. Some prefer to live along the lake or in rural acreages with creeks and room for hobby farms.

Whitewater Ski Resort is consistently lauded by Powder Magazine, Skiing and the New York Times as having some of the lightest, deepest powder on the planet.

Set along the shores and on the mountains overlooking Kootenay Lake, our mountain bike trails are literally world-famous.

We are situated in the midst of multiple golf courses with stunning lake and mountain vistas. We have a beautifully restored performing arts theatre, many live music venues, children’s theatre productions and opportunities for post-secondary education at Kootenay School of the Arts, Selkirk College Music Programme and Selkirk’s trades programs. Our numerous restaurants, coffee shops, artisan bakeries, and breweries are run by superb chefs, roasters, bakers, and brew meisters. Nelson is a hub for numerous budding and established technology companies. In short, we live here because we love this place and the people who have chosen Nelson to be their home.
