Greenwood, BC
Canada's Smallest City

Greenwood City Hall

Greenwood is now Canada's smallest city, but when it was incorporated in 1897 it was one of the mining boom towns. After World War One, the mining boom collapsed and Greenwood was all but deserted. In the early 1940's over 1000 Japanese Canadians were interned interned in Greenwood.

Greenwood is not only the smallest city in Canada, but also a great Canadian tourist attraction. Located along Highway #3 between Osoyoos and Grand Forks, Green wood is nestled in the Boundary region between the Okanagan and the Kootenays of southern British Columbia.

Greenwood offers attractions and historical sites set amid BC's natural beauty. It is a great place to explore or just relax.

Many turn-of-the-century buildings have been restored, including: the Courthouse, Post Office and MacArthur Centre.
