ABOUT NELSON

It’s what you call uncommon ground. Nelson, British Columbia is one of only a few small North America communities that offers a unique mix of cosmopolitan big-city amenities and authentic small town charm. The surroundings are supernatural. The pace of life is laid back and forward thinking. And as it has for over a century, entrepreneurial spirit and resilience resonate from the shops of historic Baker Street to the traditional lands and bountiful backcountry of this place we all call home.

WE’RE HERE TO HELP
