What do I need to know about living in Kelowna?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Kelowna, they said:

"Kelowna is a beautiful city located in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada. It is known for its stunning scenery, mild climate, and abundance of outdoor activities. Before retiring in Kelowna, expats should research the cost of living, healthcare options, and the availability of public transportation. It is also important to familiarize yourself with the local culture and customs, as well as the language. Additionally, expats should consider the tax implications of retiring in Canada, as well as the availability of banking and financial services. Finally, expats should take the time to explore the city and its surrounding areas to ensure that it is the right fit for them," said one expat who made the move to Kelowna.
