Find Businesses and Services in Kelowna, British Columbia

Kelowna (2007 population 106,707, metropolitan population of 165,596) is a city on Okanagan Lake in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada. Its name derives from a native term for "female grizzly bear." Kelowna is the seat of the Regional District of the Central Okanagan, the third-largest metropolitan area in British Columbia (after the Vancouver and Victoria), and the largest in the British Columbia Interior.

With scenic lake vistas and a dry, mild climate, Kelowna has become one of the fastest growing cities in North America. The appropriate management of such rapid development (and its attendant consequences) is a source of significant debate within the community. Kelowna is the second most expensive housing market in Canada (behind Vancouver). Also, Kelowna is the least affordable housing market in Canada and 13th in the world. It is classified as "Severely Unaffordable". Because of the Okanagan's climate and vineyard-filled scenery, it has been compared to California. Kelowna ranks as the 22nd largest metropolitan area in Canada.
