The Central Okanagan Advantage

Love where you live, work and play in this four-seasons paradise bursting with entrepreneurial energy.


Breathe the Fresh Air

There’s more to the Central Okanagan than stunning beaches, world-class resorts and some of the best wine in Canada: There’s a network of innovative business movers, shakers and creators ready to welcome you and your idea.

Here, on the shores of Okanagan Lake and surrounded by towering Ponderosa Pines, businesses are born. From apples and grapes to tech and aerospace innovators, Kelowna’s history of transforming start-ups into success stories earned the city its status as ‘Best City to open a business’ according to the Canadian Federation of Small Businesses.

And, with a culture built around experiencing the outdoors, farm-to-table food and artisanal crafts, the Central Okanagan is more than just a great place to start a business: it’s home.
