British Columbia

Kelowna

From the beginning the attraction to, and the phenomenal growth of Kelowna was inevitable.

In a setting by a lake, surrounded by mountains Kelowna and the Okanagan Valley enjoy some of the most favorable weather conditions in Canada.. Very high hours per day sunshine, combined with very low average precipitation have caused the area to be classed as semi-arid. Ground cactus is common on the lower mountainsides in the valley but modern irrigation keeps parks, orchards and golf courses green.

Often referred to as the Hawaii of Canada or the Florida of the north, Kelowna annually attracts visitors from around the world. Many return and often remain. As the population grew, the services and choices expanded broadening the attraction. The area has enjoyed one of North America's highest growth rates over the past twenty years resulting in a flourishing economy.
Tourism, Forestry, Fruit growing, and Wineries (over thirty locally) are the obvious industries.

Tourism is attracted to Kelowna's beauty, weather, beaches, boating, skiing, wine festivals, and golf (thirteen courses within the city limits and five more within a thirty minute drive). Kelowna is the fastest growing retirement area in Canada. The experienced and diversified population demand a high quality of life, and choices, and. . . "Kelowna Delivers".
