District of Lake Country on Our Okanagan:

The small community of Lake Country is located in the Okanagan Valley. It includes the 4 neighbourhood communities of Oyama, Winfield, Carr's Landing & Okanagan Centre. Lake Country is a beautiful, unique place rich in its own cultural history.

Imagine Business. The Okanagan Way. 

Imagine rush hour reduced to an enjoyable bicycle ride to work. Imagine breakfast meetings catered with fruit grown minutes from your office, or meeting clients on one of forty golf courses within a thirty-minute drive. Imagine a five-minute commute to the country’s tenth-largest airport, connecting you direct to business in Seattle, Vancouver, Victoria, Prince George, Edmonton, Calgary and Toronto and seasonal getaways in Las Vegas, Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos and Cancun. This is Business. The Okanagan Way: building the career you want, to sustain a lifestyle you’ll love. The District of Lake Country is one of British Columbia’s best-connected communities, a place where you can truly have it all. Nestled in the scenic Okanagan Valley between Kelowna and Vernon, Lake Country is part of the fast-growing Okanagan region with a population of more than 150,000—the largest community between Vancouver and Calgary. Intersected by Highway 97 and boasting easy air access by the Kelowna International Airport, Lake Country has become a hub of growth and innovation that involves tourism, agriculture, technology, business and the arts.

A place to learn. 

The Okanagan Valley is home to two centres of higher learning, Okanagan College and the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus. Accommodating more than 12,000 students and generating an economic impact upwards of $300 Million per year, the Okanagan’s post-secondary institutions are the economic engines driving growth through research, development and job-ready graduates. More than half of Lake Country’s workforce holds a trades certificate, college or university degree.

A place to grow. 

Central Okanagan and the Okanagan Valley continue to undergo significant urban development, and currently have more than 568 hectares of development-ready, industrially zoned land available to meet the growing demands of a population expected to reach 250,000 by 2030. In the District of Lake Country, more than ten hectares of commercially zoned land have been serviced and set aside for the development of the community’s commercial and cultural core, a traditional mixed-use commercial and residential neighbourhood. The District of Lake Country is committed to helping business build, work, and invest in the area, and offers businesses tax rates lower than the provincial average.

A place to prosper.  

Lake Country isn’t just a place to work—it’s a place to truly live. Residents enjoy hot summers and temperate winters with boundless opportunities for year-round recreation: from water sports to cycling, golfing, skiing, hiking and much more. Within a one-hour drive of three destination ski resorts and enjoying miles of lake front beaches and parks, Lake Country is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. The vibrant, tight-knit community is also rich in culture, offering extraordinary arts and entertainment, as well as acclaimed fine and casual dining.  A place to learn, grow and prosper: Lake Country offers limitless opportunity set in unspoiled natural beauty.
