Grand Forks

Set in a beautiful valley near the Christina Range of the Monashee Mountains at the confluence of the Granby and Kettle rivers, the City of Grand Forks is the hub of the Boundary Region. Located between the Okanagan Valley and the Kootenays, residents enjoy a semi-arid climate with low precipitation, mild winters, and hot summers. The community has been home to a large Doukhobor population since the early 1900s and continues to celebrate and embrace this rich culture.
