Bow Valley Community Resource Directory

Resource Directory & Affordability Guide


This is a great resource if you have been in the Bow Valley for a while or if you are a newcomer. It lists all the clubs, support services and organizations that make up our unique, diverse and vibrant communities. It is jointly produced by the Town of Banff Community Services and the Town of Canmore FCSS (Family and Community Support Services) so that you can get involved and connected and access any support you need.

Printed copies of the Directory and Bow Valley Affordability Guide are available at Banff Town Hall, Canmore Civic Centre, MD Bighorn Office, libraries, recreations centres and other community locations.
