Surrounded by mountains and set on the shores of Kootenay Lake, part of Nelson's charm is its stunning scenery and its quintessential small-town atmosphere. But don't let the quiet fool you. Nelson is a world-class recreational playground with all the comforts of today's amenities, and lots of exciting things to do and see year round.
Nelson's economic base comprises light industrial, small business, education and the service and hospitality industries. The city is the core business and professional centre for the West Kootenay, and supports three campuses of Selkirk College (Kootenay School of the Arts, Silver King and Tenth Street) and the Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences.For more information on the City of Nelson, visit the Nelson & District Chamber of Commerce website.
