Investing in Golden, British Columbia



Region:  Thompson/Okanagan

Regional District:  Columbia-Shuswap

From every direction, Golden (a.k.a. Kicking Horse Country) is a great place to be! Coming from the east, Golden is the gateway to the Province of British Columbia and the majestic Purcell and Selkirk mountain ranges. From the west, Golden is nestled at the foot of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. From the South, you’ll experience the Columbia River Wetlands – a 180km long stretch of pristine wetlands that over 300 species of birds and mammals call home. To top it off, we’re right in the heart of six of Canada’s most impressive National Parks: Banff, Jasper, Glacier, Yoho, Kootenay and Mount Revelstoke and, our Downtown is located right beside the confluence of the mighty Columbia and the historic Kicking Horse rivers where you’ll find Canada’s longest single-span, timber frame pedestrian bridge. And we’re connected! Golden is strategically located on two of Canada’s largest transportation routes – the Canadian Pacific Railway and the Trans-Canada Highway. With Golden’s progressive planning, great schools, proactive and accessible health care, forward thinking residents, two traffic lights and no rush hour, you’re sure to get to where you need to go, and keep connected with the people and places that mean the most to you - anywhere in the world. Every day Golden is attracting visitors, investors and residents who want to experience mountain life in an authentic, welcoming and adventurous B.C. community. Is it time for you to make your move and see what Golden has to offer? The Golden area includes the municipality of Golden and most of the rural Electoral Area A of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District. It is equivalent to the Golden Local Health Area.
