The Smallest Incorporated City In Canada
Step back in time and visit an era of early Canadian charm. A thriving mining town in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, it is still a thriving city today. Our history is what draws many people to our city, with more than 60 heritage buildings that paint the landscape, each has it’s own story to tell.
With abundant lakes, rivers and parks, Greenwood offers year round fun along with an interesting Japanese history that you will want to discover in our amazing Museum. Greenwood is your historic destination along the Crowsnest Highway 3, just north of the USA border.

Greenwood Flood Assessment and Mitigation
Greenwood Flood Risk Assessment, Mapping & Mitigation Planning Study
The City of Greenwood has experienced significant flood threats over the past number of years. With several susceptible flood zones in the Boundary Creek over the past decade, there are increased concerns surrounding the impact of future flood events within Greenwood.
In January 2021, the City competed a Flood Risk Assessment, Mapping & Mitigation Planning Study to understand flood risks and provide recommendations on how to protect the community. The study provided a detailed flood risk assessment, mapping of areas at the highest risk for flooding and flood mitigation planning for the community. Through investigating the hazards from flooding the study proposes practical, feasible and economical solutions to mitigate property damage from the future floods within Greenwood. The results of this study will be used to finalize the detailed design and construction of the recommended flood mitigation plan.
This project was funded by the Province of BC through the Union of BC Municipalities Community Emergency Preparedness Fund.
Building flood resiliency takes the whole community working together. A key piece of The City’s work is to engage with citizens to gather input and perspectives on potential flood mitigation measures.
These recommendations detail the best mitigation measures for Greenwood to pursue, based on technical data, environmental, social, and economic factors. Now we need public input to help refine the final design concept for construction.
Learn more and share your thoughts!
This survey will provide an opportunity for the community to provide feedback on the flood mitigation concept plans and help the City better understand the types of risks residents face when threatened by a flood event.
Survey will be open from August 2 – 15. Please click here!
