Elkford: Who’s who in business
Elkford’s slogan is “Wild at heart,” and the beautiful Rocky Mountain outdoors figure largely in both employment and recreation for the town’s residents.
Founded as a home for miners in 1971, Elkford now has a population of almost 3,000 people. The town is situated 35 kilometres north of Sparwood, at the end of Highway 43, a spur that runs north from the busy Crowsnest Highway in southeastern B.C.
