The Kaslo and Area Chamber of Commerce
The Kaslo and Area Chamber of Commerce proudly represents the interests and well-being of the business communities throughout the area.
So… What do we mean by ‘Kaslo and Area’? While the Village of Kaslo is the most highly populated, our North Kootenay Lake “Area” includes: Ainsworth Hot Springs, Argenta, Cooper Creek, Fletcher Creek/Twin Bays, Johnsons Landing, Kaslo, Lardeau, Lardeau Valley, Meadow Creek, Mirror Lake, Pineridge, Schroeder Creek, Shutty Bench and Woodbury … and everything in between!
Our Chamber is committed to supporting and promoting the well-being of our area’s business community; encouraging partnership and collaboration among businesses; providing opportunities for networking, community involvement, professional growth; and advocating for members at the provincial level to ensure that concerns are heard.
Throughout the year, the Chamber sponsors and/or supports a number of events which have become important traditions, including May Days, and Light Up! COVID provided us with a unique challenge… how do we safely celebrate? We came up with our Bring It to the People Parade, featuring our faithful public service providers, businesses and organizations as we drive up and down the streets of both Lower and Upper Kaslo, allowing residents to enjoy the parade from the safety and comfort of their own front yards and along the parade route. In December 2020 we held our Light Up 2020! Parade and in May, 2021, Don’t Burst Your Bubble Parade! Our parades truly are a celebration of the good lifestyle we enjoy here in the Kootenays!
