KCDS serves a wide geographical area in the Central Kootenay Region of British Columbia. Our employment services are offered in Castlegar and Nelson, along with a vast rural region containing the small Villages of Slocan, Salmo and Kaslo. With the area’s low population density, mountainous and isolated areas, KCDS acts as a kind of “connective tissue” bringing together job seekers and employers—with each other, and with the employment-related educational and financial support programs enabling them to live in this very special part of the world.
