Elkford has grown into more than just a mining town: it’s an extraordinary wilderness community, offering the best of modern amenities and mountain culture, in the Kootenay Rockies of British Columbia. It’s located at a higher altitude than any other community in B.C., and it’s one of those rare places where you can still step out your door and into the wilderness. 

Unsurprisingly, to run a community like this effectively, you need more than just your average group of government employees. That’s why, at the District of Elkford, we’ve staffed our team with individuals who are caring, dedicated, diverse, tenacious and qualified for their respective roles. 

Our community depends on Corporate Administration and Financial Services to keep Elkford’s collective health and best interests protected. On Elkford’s Fire & Emergency Services to tirelessly put out fires, save lives, educate the community and perform wildfire mitigation. And on Bylaw Enforcement and Planning and Development Services to continually strive toward making our community cleaner, safer and more economically diverse.

We count on Public Works to keep our roads clear, our water flowing and our essential services running smoothly so that we all have less to worry about. On Community & Facility Services to keep our spirits up and our families swimming, skating and active. And lastly—but certainly not least—on our Recreation Maintenance team to keep the parks, playgrounds and greenspaces in Elkford pristine for everyone to enjoy.
