The town of Canmore is a tight-knit community. The people here are friendly. The faces of many of the business owners in town are the same ones you see in your own neighborhoods. When a community is so closely laced, you gain more than a nice place to live. You gain a family. As the weather begins to cool, take advantage of the local events and activities happening. You may see some familiar faces and get to know some new ones!
