While Grand Forks is the largest community in the Boundary region, the entire area offers its residents community-focused living and a quality lifestyle. The Boundary also holds communities such as Christina Lake, Greenwood, Midway and Rock Creek. The city of Grand Forks is only a few hours away from both Kelowna, B.C., and Spokane in Washington and provides the benefit of being situated on a major highway while still offering a small-town feel.

Grand Forks branding and tourism

 
Grand Forks, B.C., is situated at the confluence of the Kettle and Granby rivers, in south-central B.C.’s Monashee Mountains immediately north of the Canada-U.S. border. Recreation in the area includes boating, fishing, swimming and camping as well as golfing, hiking, mountain biking and winter snow sports.

The area’s economy is based on agriculture, forestry and tourism. A popular hold-over from the community’s Doukhobor founders, traditional Russian borscht is the signature ethnic dish of Grand Forks.
