Castlegar Community Response Network

Found between the Columbia and Kootenay Rivers in the Selkirk mountains, Castlegar is the second largest city in the West Kootenay region. Of its over 8,000 residents, 23% are seniors 65+. Castlegar takes its name from its founder Edward Mahon’s ancestral home Castlegar in County Galway, Ireland.

The Castlegar CRN is very excited to announce the introduction of a transportation assistance program for seniors, organized by IRIS (Increasing Recreation Involving Seniors) – read more about the program here.
