“Surrounded by stunning mountains and set on the shores of pristine Kootenay Lake, Nelson has been called the prettiest small town in Canada. Home to over 350 restored heritage buildings, Nelson’s charm creates the quintessential storybook setting.
Nelson has a diverse infrastructure and development is soaring, with the largest areas of growth in education and small- and medium-sized businesses. The community is looking to attract high tech industry, education, tourism, value-added manufacturing, light industry and other areas of technology.
As the service centre for the West Kootenay, Nelson offers incredible and unique shopping opportunities. The community has excellent educational facilities, both public and private.
Recreational opportunities abound: hockey, swimming, soccer, baseball, fishing and boating, skiing (cross-country, downhill, heli-jet), mountain climbing, biking, yoga, martial arts, dance-we’ve got it all.” – City of Nelson Website
