Kootenays / Castlegar, BC is located half-way between Vancouver and Calgary in the beautiful, majestic Kootenay Mountains. This community offers a low cost of living (~40-50% less than the big cities) a wealth of outdoor adventure, and an entrepreneurial spirit. From grape-vines to vivid backcountry, Castlegar offers a community where there is a true connection to the land.
Why live in the Kootenay’s? …says Verigin-Burk. “Everything I could possibly need is here, and we’re on the confluence of the Columbia and Kootenay Rivers, surrounded by mountains, skiing and golf. “You can afford to live here, to raise your family here,” she adds. “You don’t have to take on two or three jobs to pay your mortgage. You can enjoy your life.”
While affordability, natural beauty and outdoor recreation (boating, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, paddle-boarding and more) are some of the draws for people seeking quality of life to this city of 14,000, so are business opportunities. Economic development in Castlegar is taking off.
