About the Slocan Valley

Some people say the Slocan Valley is as much a state of mind as it is a place.

True enough it has an amazing physical landscape… but perhaps because of this spectacular beauty, the people that live here have a different attitude than most places in the world.

To the people of the Slocan Valley, quality of life is paramount.

This reflects in our history, the way we make their living, who settles here, and what we value.

Our Values

We value and respect a diversity of lifestyles and cultures.We care about our natural environment and the people that live and pass through it.

We try to be as gentle on our environment while we explore and enjoy it… and we expect the same of those who visit.

We believe in gradual, sustainable economic growth that is aligned with our values.

Quality of life is a priority for us.

We welcome visitors who are looking for a relaxed, eclectic, natural experience.

We guarantee you won’t find the glass, steel, and asphalt of the city. Instead you’ll find nature, beauty, warmth, freedom, hidden treasures, great people, wonderful services, and the funkyness that the West Kootenays is known for.
