With beautiful mountains, lush forests, local attractions combined with the small-town feel, and friendly people; there are so many reasons to celebrate opportunities for visitors in Cranbrook.

Tourism is a key economic driver and one of BC’s competitive strengths in the world economy. The tourism industry in British Columbia is a $17 billion industry, comprised of a variety of stakeholders all playing a role in helping BC be a stronger competitor in the global landscape.
