In January, the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission (COEDC) launched a multi-tiered digital shout-out to Canadian expatriates in California to attract more people – especially entrepreneurs – back to the Kelowna area.
The response was tremendous: traffic from California has spiked 272%, primarily from Canadian expatriates aged 23 to 50 living in the San Francisco area, home of Silicon Valley.
It is just the latest evidence that Kelowna is striding into an unprecedented growth phase.
With a population topping 194,000, up 8.4% since 2011, Kelowna is reaching mid-city critical mass, and even U.S. developers are taking note.
