Its downtown core and bustling city centre, located on Market Avenue, offers quaint cafes, galleries and the City Hall. Grand Forks boasts four season living with recreational activities to match. This small community has been home to a large Doukhobor population since the early 1900´s and continues to celebrate and embrace their rich culture.
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.
