Working or owning a business in a mountain town has its advantages. Your work to life balance is a whole lot more plausible with no traffic jams and an average commute of ten minutes. Productivity is maximized whether you are a virtual commuter working from home, a professional in the community, or an entrepreneur operating your own business. The dramatic beauty of the town inspires creativity and the small- town feel allows you to build meaningful relationships with your neighbors and your clients.
Enjoy our lifestyle
With an amazing cohort of service clubs and volunteers that bring this town to life, working together to build legacies and friendships is second nature. Meeting people with similar interests is easy through Hope’s many social clubs and events. Whether it be on a hiking trail with the Hope outdoor Group, grilling up burgers with the Hope Lions Club, or watching the stock car races at Hope Brigade Days, there is something for everyone!
Safe neighborhoods; small class sizes at Silvercreek Elementary, Coquihalla Elementary, and Hope Secondary; excellent parks and playgrounds; and Recreation Centre make this a young family’s ideal place to raise kids. There are two lakes that are swimming friendly within 3km of town centre, and a third a short drive away. There is a skate park, a mountain bike skills park, and a thriving Art Machine for art classes. Manning Park Resort is a 45min drive away and it is the epitome of an accessible, four-season family resort.
Hope is a retirement paradise housing all of the amenities that you will need to enjoy your golden years.

The Recreation Complex offers several fitness classes targeted at seniors including aqua-fit, weightlifting and yoga.
