The CSRD is situated at the northern edge of the Kootenay and Okanagan valleys, stretching west from the Rocky Mountains along the British Columbia-Alberta border to the centre of the province. It encompasses three national parks – Yoho, Glacier and Mount Revelstoke – and the Columbia Mountains, including the Purcell, Selkirk and Monashee ranges.
The landscape is spectacular and varied, offering high alpine mountain peaks, gorgeous small towns, untamed wilderness, lush green valleys, isolated lakefront properties, beaches, and picture-perfect farms. Communities in our region include Revelstoke, Golden, Salmon Arm, Sicamous and also Anglemont, Blind Bay, Carlin, Celista, Deep Creek, Falkland, Field, Mica, Ranchero, Scotch Creek, Seymour Arm, Sorrento, St. Ives and Tappen.
The Columbia Shuswap is located roughly half way between Vancouver and Calgary on the Trans Canada Highway and is easily accessible via airports in Kelowna and Calgary.
