Kaslo is a rural village with an approximate population of 1,000 and has a surrounding catchment population of approximately 2,000.
Kaslo is located on Kootenay Lake and is surrounded by the Purcell and Selkirk Mountains, making the outdoor adventure options virtually limitless.
Take a houseboat, kayak, or canoe out on the lake, hike at one of the area's many provincial parks, or soak up revitalizing minerals at Ainsworth Hot Springs.
Culture and history are also an important part of this community, originally designated as a sawmill site in 1889, Kaslo grew on the silver boom of the 19th century, and retains much of the history from its mining days.
Today the town relies mainly on the industries of forestry and tourism to support its economy.
The Kaslo Jazz Festival, held every August long weekend, is a popular music event which attracts international performers and draws large audiences.
Kaslo boasts the type of lifestyle offered by clean streets, safe parks, pristine nature, and the kind of community where everyone is your neighbour.
