Submission Deadline: July 5th, 2016 at 1:00pm

Grand Forks is the perfect backdrop for families and retirees, with a strong commitment to healthy living, affordability and great quality of life. Incorporated in 1897, Grand Forks is the “hub” of the Boundary Region, located between the Okanagan Valley and the Kootenays. Our community is surrounded by fresh, pristine water from the Granby and Kettle Rivers and is nestled in a breathtaking and unique east/west running Valley.

Our central location means that we are only a couple of hours drive from 2 major centres; Spokane and Kelowna and that the closest regional airport is a 1 hour drive to Castlegar or a 2 hour drive to Kelowna to the International airport.

If it’s rugged recreation, clean living or new opportunities that you’re after, Grand Forks offers it all.
