The Columbia Valley is located along the narrow Columbia River, where the Region's two largest natural lakes, COLUMBIA and WINDERMERE, are located. Mountains rise steeply on either side of this valley, restricting development to a narrow band along its length. The gradient of the Columbia River along this valley is gentle, resulting in creation of extensive marsh lands, intermingling channels, and shallow lakes which forms an important habitat for migratory waterfowl and wintering areas for big game species. 

Also located in this Sub-Region is the Upper Kootenay River Valley, draining the Rocky Mountains to the east. Because of its altitude, steep slope, and narrow width, this valley has not been settled.

More information about the Area can obtained at or 

The economy of the Columbia Valley Sub-Region is based primarily upon the recreation and tourism industry. Forestry and mining are also major components of the economic base. Mining is presently limited but there are significant prospects for the future in this industry. The area also supports several agricultural operations.
