Living in Cranbrook
Cranbrook is located near the junction of Highway 95A and Crowsnest Highway 3 in the BC Rockies, 32 kilometres southeast of Kimberly. Situated between the dogtooth range of the Purcell Mountains and the Rocky Mountains, Cranbrook is the largest city in the Kootenay Rockies; at last count, over 19,319 reside in Cranbrook proper — with no signs of slowing down. Cranbrook is an active living community and outdoor recreation mecca in the Columbia Valley with mild winters and more sunshine hours than any other BC city, a nod to its popularity for business and recreation.
With a wealth of cultural, recreation, and community involvement for a varied demographic, Cranbrook is perfectly situated with immediate access to some of the world's most spectacular outdoor sights and activities. The East Kootenays has a large and increasing tourism sector and almost all visitors (62% of which are non-residents) to the region stay in, or pass through, Cranbrook. The city serves as a hub for resorts and outdoor tourism facilities such as ski hills, hot springs and golf courses.
Cranbrook is positioned as an affordable, small town mountain lifestyle with big city amenities. New developments, built around golf courses and leisure facilities, offer exceptional lifestyle opportunities, while downtown heritage homes offer cosmopolitan and eclectic living. Cranbrook provides the opportunity to live in one of the most affordable regions of BC, with the average value of owner-occupied homes ($282,000) less than half that of the provincial average ($611,700).
The area is becoming increasingly popular with international buyers as well, due to exceptional value and landscapes and lifestyles unavailable in Europe. A significant population base also surrounds Cranbrook: a neighbouring regional population of 2.1 million with 1.4 million in the nearby Alberta-Calgary area and 329,000 in neighbouring US counties. These surrounding regions will continue to play an important role in Cranbrook's economic future.Contact Us
Cranbrook's Economic Drivers
Cranbrook serves communities such as Fernie, Kimberley, Invermere, Radium Hot Springs and Golden with a range of health care, social and education services. An expanding retail sector, and an effective transport infrastructure, including major highways, rail, and the Canadian Rockies International Airport (YXC), provides linkage from Cranbrook to markets almost anywhere in the world. YXC offers direct daily air links to three major Canadian hubs (Vancouver, Kelowna and Calgary), services for international connections to the US and further afield, and charter flights. The airport recently re-zoned 52 acres for commercial and industrial airport land development.
Cranbrook's diverse economy provides exceptional opportunities for both individuals and businesses. The retail and health care sectors, service infrastructure and traditional resource based industry, combined with entrepreneurial industries, hi-tech, and alternative energy producers provide a truly dynamic business environment.
Forestry, mining, manufacturing, tourism, trade, service and transportation make up the economic backbone of the East Kootenay region. Cranbrook serves as the leading distribution and service centre for the mining industry. Local manufacturing primarily focuses on lumber and wood products, machinery, equipment, fabricating, and food and beverage products.
As an entertainment and profitable business entity, the Kootenay Ice WHL Hockey franchise is one of the biggest economic retention and enhancement initiatives in the city. An accurate but not official assessment estimates $4,977,800 of direct economic benefit to the City of Cranbrook annually.
