We are here to help make your new home feel like home
We are a community of people who know what it feels like to be a new resident in a new place. We are humbled and excited that you chose the Columbia Valley to be your new home. Hello and Welcome!
To help you get acquainted with the Valley, we have assembled a Welcome Package just for you! In this package, you can find gift certificates, samples and coupons to local businesses, community guides, attractions, events calendars, volunteer opportunities and more. Welcome packages are available to new residents within 6 months of arrival to the Valley.
Come in and say Hello
We want to meet you! You can find us at the Invermere Visitor Centre (right along the highway). Drop by to get all of your questions answered and meet the team.
