Sparwood, BC is yours and mine.

We may be called ‘that town with the big green truck’ or we might be that community in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, right on BC’s border. But if there’s one thing we are to everyone, it’s a mining community; a collection of hard-working fun-loving people who happily call Sparwood home. We’re proud to share that with you.

Stop by anytime, share a smile or stay a while. It’s yours and mine to discover!
