The Canadian border remains closed for recreational tourism, so we are asking our international visitors to dream now and explore BC later when the time is right. While the border remains open for essential travel purposes, any visitor who arrives from outside of Canada must quarantine for 14 days.
While there is currently no date set for the reopening of the border, as soon as we know, we’ll share that info here. We look forward to welcoming you as soon as we can.
See the Canadian Border Services Agency website for the latest updates.

Nelson’s unique downtown and nearby residential districts, parks and amenities are filled with a diverse population who share a common thread: they all live in an idyllic, clean, and safe city that offers an abundance of goods and services.
