Penticton, nestled between two beautiful fresh water lakes in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia.  This city of approximately 33,000 population offers all of the amenities of larger urban centres (an airport, hospital, events centre, two high schools, 2 middle schools, 5 elementary schools, a catholic school, a french school, and numerous large chain stores) yet maintains its small town charm and friendliness thanks to a lovely downtown area, beautiful beaches, wineries and loads of green space. It is a great place to work, live and invest in a new or existing business.


Climate even within the Okanagan there are differences in the climate. The overall quality of life in Penticton is enhanced by having the most attractive climate in all of Canada, with low levels of precipitation, high average temperatures, comfortable humidity levels, short winters and early spring seasons. For visitors, this often means one trip turns into several and then eventually the visitor becomes a very happy resident of Penticton.
