The balance between a good life and a good job has never been more in demand. Nelson offers both. The region’s business community is as vibrant as the city’s cultural and geographical landscape.
People choose to establish their business here because they can access their clientele locally and via broadband technology. The location is simply awesome. And there’s an availability of talented labour.
Nelson’s unique downtown, mountainsides and shorelines of residential districts, parks and big city amenities like physical and mental health care, municipal first responder forces, a diverse education system and reliable transportation hubs create a common thread: they provide a rare community — a peaceful, prosperous and safe city with an abundance of goods and services.
Nelson and its surrounding communities offer a broad mix of educational institutions, health care services, public transportation and air travel, a great library, sports and recreation facilities, parks, and over 200 registered clubs, leagues and societies. Nelson has in fact ranked behind only Vancouver and Victoria as the most livable city in British Columbia.
