The Kootenay region is quite the place to live and work. Full of exciting recreational activities and diverse career opportunities at all levels. You could find your niche in sectors including resource extraction, agriculture, construction, manufacturing, tourism, education or the arts to name but a few.
Working here means you can kiss those traffic jams and long commutes goodbye.
Think engaging work with office views to die for. Think lunch breaks by the lake with a mountain backdrop.
If you want a great mix of work and lifestyle take a virtual tour of the region and the diverse employers you can find 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.
