Kelowna and surrounding towns are rapidly evolving into one of the province’s hot spots for investment and commerce
Long known as a favourite vacation destination, Kelowna is rapidly evolving into one of the province’s hot spots for investment and commerce.

Consistently ranked among the world’s 40 best universities, the Okanagan campus of the University of B.C. has more than 115 research programs underway and has become a major economic driver. Five of Canada’s largest ski resorts are found within a three-hour drive and with 2,000 hours of sunshine annually, this is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream.
