Mountains and lakes surround the Southeastern corner of BC known as the Kootenay region. You may have heard about it from the lucky ones who have visited. Some of them passed through on their search for the perfect balance of work, life, recreation and opportunities and never left.
What this means is that the region is full of people just like you. They made the decision to locate in safe neighbourhoods with great schools, surrounded by unrivalled natural beauty and limitless outdoor activities.
The Kootenay region is home to many communities, some high in the mountains, some alongside beautiful lakes or rivers, others on fertile agricultural land. All of them unique.
Take a look at some of the places you could live via the links below and imagine your better life in the Kootenays.

I moved to the West Kootenay after falling in love with the region on a camping trip. I was able to find a great job at the Kootenay Savings Credit Union, where I really get to see the results of my work. I love the diversity of the communities here and all the different outdoor activities we get to enjoy. It has the strong sense of community that you get outside of urban areas, but with all the modern technology and amenities you need to keep you connected.
