Working in Kelowna 

Only 240 miles east of Vancouver, Kelowna is the largest city in the Okanagan Valley. With a mix of creative companies along with a slew of high-tech start-ups, Kelowna is fast becoming known as the “Silicon Valley of the North”.

Located on beautiful Okanagan Lake, Kelowna offers countless outdoor activities including mountain biking, water sports, golf, skiing and snowboarding. The vibrant downtown core is abundant with unique shops, cafes, patios, galleries, and music festivals. Top it all off with sandy beaches, mountain ranges, orchards and vineyards, and affordable living we like to think of Kelowna as a veritable paradise.
