Community Resources

A strong community with numerous resources yields healthy individuals and families. Nelsonites take pride in collectively offering support for both their citizens and visitors.

A community is a neighborhood of people working and interacting together for the well being of all. Nelson’s professional, cultural, racial, religious and social economic groups are all about helping one another.

Educational institutions, environmental groups, service clubs, associations, societies, emergency services, government aid and non-profit groups are a vital part of Nelson, BC’s thriving community.
