Investing in Cranbrook, British Columbia

Overview

Region:  Kootenay

Regional District:  East Kootenay

Also known as the Key City, Cranbrook is the largest urban centre in southeastern B.C., which means we’re kind of a big deal. But you won’t hear it from us. In fact, over the years, we may have underestimated our success in creating one of the safest, happiest and healthiest communities in Canada.

Our economy is stable and home to a wide range of business in retail, health care, education and trades.

Few cities in B.C. can compete with our market accessibility. Two U.S borders (Idaho and Montana) are less than an hour from Cranbrook.  And with close proximity to many Kootenay communities, like Kimberley, Fernie and Invermere, our total immediate market reach is up to 100,000.  Cranbrook is also less than two hours from southern Alberta, which expands our market to a further 4.5 million.

Strategic investments are in the queue that are intended to set up Cranbrook for long term success, accommodating growth in the local economy, better solutions to aging infrastructure, moving toward technology and innovation-based operation; while providing ways to better connect the City operation to citizens and business and investing in staff for quality service.

Building upon a solid foundation, Cranbrook has entered an exciting period of economic development.  Elected leaders and members of the business community welcome this positive change and are eager to foster growth. Hitting important metrics of location, lifestyle, labour and connectivity, Cranbrook offers an enviable economic advantage to those looking for new and sustainable investment opportunities.
