Close to the US-Canadian Border, Grand Forks is located at the confluence of the Granby and the Kettle Rivers in traditional Sinixt and Ktunaxa territories. Originally a copper mining town, Grand Forks is now known for its four-season recreational activities - from floating down the Kettle River to skiing and camping.


Downtown is tree-lined with many well-maintained heritage homes and surrounded by fertile farmland. Community and arts-minded, Grand Forks is rich with tradition in a warm, Okanagan-like climate.
