Proud History – Spirit of Resilience – Connected to Community
Experience the essence of healthy and affordable living in Grand Forks! We invest heavily in the future, while remaining true to our rich tradition of forestry, agriculture, and mining, which is the foundation of a proud history connected deeply to the land. Our spirit of resilience creates an uncompromising balance between nature and opportunity, and we are committed to providing an enviable lifestyle that can be enjoyed by all.
Grand Forks is the hub of Boundary Country, strategically located between the Okanagan Valley and the Kootenay’s and a stone’s throw from the United States border. This unique location, equidistant to Kelowna and Spokane, provides direct access to the rail system and Crowsnest Highway #3, connecting businesses to major markets and funneling tourists into our community where we gratefully share nature’s playground that lives in our backyard.
One of our greatest assets is our diverse and dynamic people. We are a welcoming and close-knit community with deep connections to each other and the region. Collaboration is part of our identity and a major contributor to our resilience in the face of natural and economic disruptions, allowing us to emerge stronger together every time. Our balanced economy and unique location feature a vibrant arts and culture scene, an abundance of local food, affordable living, and unlimited access to recreation opportunities. This is the ideal place to call home for you and your business!
