Are you a Community Health Worker who is interested in experiencing a spectacular rural setting? Then come to Creston, BC!

The quiet community of Creston is located south of Kootenay Lake in the heart of the Rockies Region in Southeast BC and is nestled between the Purcell and Selkirk Mountains. Creston boasts many local Artisans with skills such as blacksmithing, pottery, quilting, broom-making and painting and display their creations at annual events such as the Arts and Culture Festival and Art Walk. If you are seeking to relocate, Creston has a complete range of services and facilities, which provide for a comfortable and satisfying lifestyle. Known as “The Valley of the Swans,” the Creston Valley is a breathtaking combination of snow-capped mountain peaks, fields of grain, deep clear lakes and wide-open spaces. Although primarily an agricultural centre with a focus on fruit production, the community’s economy is also dependent upon forestry, manufacturing, mining and tourism.
