Invest in Blackpool

British Columbia, Canada

The Blackpool area is located approximately 115 kilometres north of the City of Kamloops, and only a short distance of 8 kilometres southwest of the District of Clearwater.

The community of Blackpool is home to a newly renovated community hall, and a volunteer fire department. Attractions include the Lacarya Golf Course & RV Park and the Alpine Meadows Resort.

The Blackpool area, abundant with farm lands, is an ideal location for ranching and agricultural opportunities. Naturally, the agriculture sector plays a large role in the sustainability of the area's local economy. Many people who live in Blackpool work within the District of Clearwater, or employment opportunities within the regions forest industry, including at the Canfor mill in Vavenby. More recently, tourism has become an increasingly significant sector in the region.
