Canmore is nestled in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, a short 45 minute drive west of Calgary on the Trans-Canada Highway. Canmore is bounded by Banff National Park to the west and surrounded by Alberta Provincial Parks including Kananaskis Country. From humble beginnings as a coal mining town. Canmore has become Canada’s premiere mountain destination, for full time living, vacation property ownership, or just visiting.

Today, business, sport, recreation, arts and culture, local community organizations, entertainment, dining and events, ….just about anything you want to discover about Canmore can be found in Canmore.
