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.

Nelson & District Chamber of Commerce
Overlooking the stunning West Arm of Kootenay Lake, the new Tenth Street Indigenous Gathering Space in Nelson is now open. This unique space, featuring a central fire pit, is designed for sacred fires, ceremonies, and healing practices.Opened with a ceremony including drumming, dancing, and speeches, this space symbolizes partnership and reconciliation. It will host community events, celebrations, and learning activities related to Indigenous history and culture.Operated by Selkirk College, the Gathering Space stands as a testament to partnership and a shared commitment to honoring Indigenous traditions.“This is more than just a structure—it’s a symbol of partnership, reciprocity and a shared commitment to reconciliation,” said Selkirk College President Maggie Matear. “It’s a way for us to honour and learn from the ways and knowing and being of Indigenous peoples who have stewarded these lands since time immemorial. And it’s a legacy that will remain for generations to come.”Learn more about Indigenous Services at Selkirk College: selkirk.ca/student-life-support/student-supports/indigenous-services ...

The Nelson and District Chamber of Commerce acknowledges that the land on which we live, work, and play is the traditional territory of the Ktunaxa, the Syilx, and the Sinixt peoples and is home to the Métis and many diverse Aboriginal persons. We honour their connection to the land and rivers and respect the importance of the environment to our strength as a community.
