Keremeos & Area Opportunities Guide

Whether you're working, retired, or just looking to get away, the Keremeos area has something for everyone!

Over the past decades, our community has slowly evolved from our modest agricultural roots to become one of the fastest growing villages in our province.  The emergence and prevalence of our world renowned Similkameen wineries has inspired a renaissance of more diverse and innovative economic activity, allowing us to both showcase the exceptional quality of our resources while paying homage to our agricultural traditions and rural heritage.

With a projected growth rate nearly double the provincial average, our area continues to grow at a steady pace, bringing with it an increase in permanent residents and opportunities to cater to our community’s growing and diverse business needs.

When looking to establish business in our area, investors can rely on our lower labour costs, competitive property tax rates, cost-effective amenities and our affordable stock of commercial and residential properties.

We invite you to find your opportunity in Keremeos.
