Lifestyle


The West Kootenay’s are all about a new lifestyle – a distinct “about face” compared to most other living environments.


 

Residents are conscious of their living environment – “organic foods”, “recycling” and “living off the land” are all part of everyday living here. And now, “green homes” are part of these thoughts.

The West Kootenays are nestled between the Selkirk Mountain Range to the West and the Purcell Mountain Range to the east. Combined with our four seasons, this rugged geography creates a stunning viewscape for all to enjoy – year round.

Our rich heritage attracts many, creating a community abounding with arts, culture, music and eateries. It is well known that Nelson has earned the distinction as being Canada’s best small arts town.

Today, with a population of almost 10,000, Nelson serves as the West Kootenay centre for government, arts, tourism, commerce, small manufacturing and home-based businesses.

Much more information on the Kootenays can be found on the web sites included in our links.
