    Close, but not on the Canadian side, sorry.

    My sister lives in Kamloops but they say that there doesn't seem to be any residential cutters there. I lived in the lower mainland when I was a kid and I have heard that vancouver is getting worse for crime. I have a good business here in Toronto but thinking of trying B.C. again.

    Vernon seems to have a decent amount of work. There is a high ratio of seniors here, so a lot of adult communities are being built. We have a pop of about 110,000 in the North Okanagan. Kelowna, 50km to the south of us is a rapidly growing community with a pop of about 150,000 in the area. Lots of potential there for work as a well. Kelowna seems to be enjoying a lot more population growth than us here in Vernon though. I agree, Vancouver is getting bad. I don't miss living there. I've got a few friends in the industry there and it is cut-throat. There are people working for free pretty much. The only upside to Vancouver/Victoria is the extended season. We run Mid march to end of October, and do snow removal in the winter months.
