Economic Development


The City of Kimberley is working to build a thriving, resilient local economy. The City aims is to expand and diversify Kimberley’s economy while maintaining the desirable cultural, environmental, recreational, and social characteristics of the community – characteristics that contribute to our exceptional quality of life and help to draw business people to Kimberley.

Economic Development activities are driven by the strategic priorities outlined in Kimberley’s Corporate Strategic Plan, and complement investments made by the federal and provincial governments. They are undertaken in collaboration with local and regional community partners – such as the Kimberley Chamber of Commerce, Tourism Kimberley, Community Futures East Kootenay, Columbia Basin Trust, the Science Councils, and civil society organizations concerned with arts, culture, and recreation – to foster a healthy business environment.
