Grand Forks is located at the junction of the Kettle and Granby Rivers in the beautiful West Kootenay Region. Grand Forks is home to 4,049 residents and is a growing community with endless outdoor activities, festivals and events along with a great climate! 

Many newcomers have called Grand Forks their home in the last two years as young families and retirees are attracted to the low cost of living, mild climate, access to amazing trails, ski hills (Phoenix Ski Hill, Big White and Mount Baldy) and the stunning Christina Lake area (warmest tree-lined lake in BC).
