The lifestyle here is a great draw for both business owners and employees alike! The tree fruit industry has been established for over a century in the Okanagan but today Kelowna is also home to flourishing high tech and aerospace sectors. Light manufacturing and tourism establishments are also prevalent in the area.
The city’s shopping malls feature well-known anchor tenants like Chapters, Sport Mart, Home Depot, Costco, Wal-Mart, Superstore and The Bay which draw consumers from many of the smaller towns throughout the region. Equally as attractive are all of the boutique shopping options Kelowna has to offer locals and visitors alike.
A healthy tourism sector with two main ski hills nearby, fantastic hotels throughout the city, restaurants and other service based businesses, provide consistent hospitality oriented job opportunities. Construction industry jobs from trades to architects are also a mainstay in the Kelowna area.
