Wellness Is ~ Anything that promotes a sense of community, connection and love.

Come and experience the life of a small town!

Wellness Awaits You in the Village of Ashcroft.  A small town nestled along the banks of the Thompson River with clean air, fresh water, locally produced foods, ample hiking and walking opportunities and affordable housing.  We are often the official hot spot not only in BC but in all of Canada and shovelling snow only happens a handful of times each winter.  The common feeling when you cross the river into Ashcroft is that you have come home. 
Our climate provides many natural health benefits for our residents.  For those who suffer from arthritis, the warm, dry climate provides them with less pain and  the freedom of more mobility.  The clean, fresh air is a welcome relief to anyone suffering from respiratory ailments.   For those with young families the community is a safe environment with a wide variety of parks and recreational activities.  In Ashcroft you can afford to live, work and still have time to play with your family.  The climate allows you to grow all types of fruits and vegetables so you know where your food is coming from and healthy choices are easy to make.
We have a rich history and played an important part in the development of the interior of British Columbia. We were one of the starting points on the wagon road to Barkerville and provided many of the necessities for those travelling north.  Transportation has been a significant part of our history.  Both of Canada's major railroads, Canadian Pacific and Canadian National, travel through Ashcroft as well as Highway 97C which connects us with the Trans Canada Highway and the Coquihalla Highway.   
We are a progressive, positive Village whose residents take pride in their community.  We welcome you to our website and hope that this sounds like a  place you may wish to visit and possibly call home.  The next time you are going by take a few minutes to come down into town and spend some time - who knows - you may just decide to stay.
