Kelowna, British Columbia: The 3rd largest city in British Columbia is a thriving metropolis, offering endless opportunities for recreation, arts and culture and business development. The Okanaganís four seasons playground offers a quality lifestyle for all ages with enjoyment from festivals, theatres, world-class wineries, champion golf courses, ski resorts to the gift of mother natures, mountains and lakes.

Kelowna has become the main marketing and distribution centre of the Okanagan Valley, with a flourishing tree fruit industry and a growing light industrial sector that competes on a world scale. Best known for forestry and the manufacture of boats, plastics, fibreglass, body armour and oil field equipment, Kelowna also has a growing high technology sector that includes aerospace development and service.

Kelowna's airport is the 11th busiest in Canada with approximately 35 scheduled flights a day. It is also one of the fastest growing in North America and a multi-year expansion plan is nearing completion. In addition Skyreach Place, a 6,000-seat multi-purpose facility thatís home to the Kelowna Rockets of the Western Hockey League, attracts major entertainers and events. The new Rotary Centre For The Arts is a significant feature of the downtown cultural district, and Stuart Park on the Waterfront Promenade will be developed over the next several years.
