Nestled between the spectacular Selkirk and Monashee Mountains on the mighty Columbia River, you will find the Gateway to Mountain Adventure and National Parks - Revelstoke. This city offers unique opportunities for both visitors and residents - untouched natural beauty offering year round adventures with a legacy of heritage buildings that lend character and quaintness to the town. Hiking, mountain biking, fishing, caving, canoeing, snowmobiling and the best backcountry skiing anywhere are only some of the benefits offered. The rest you will have to check out for yourself.

Community Health Workers provide home support services to clients, by assisting with personal care and daily living, while promoting maximum independence.
