Creston’s economy is largely resource-based, with agriculture and forestry. Situated close to the US-Canadian border, Creston is on Kootenay Lake cradled by the Selkirk and Purcell Mountain ranges in traditional Ktunaxa territory.

Home to an active Arts Community with a bustling downtown, Creston maintains its family-oriented atmosphere in a gorgeous natural setting.


Creston is known for its spectacular and diverse Wildlife Management Area, Millennium and Schikurski Parks, and the Baillie-Grohman Estate Winery.
