Who needs a City of Greenwood business licence?

Many Canadians hold a romantic ideal of what life in a small-town might be like … shorter commutes, fresher air, safer streets, a stronger sense of community. Greenwood is Canada’s smallest city, a historic town, a community with 676 residents, located along Highway #3 nestled in the Kootenay Boundary region of southern British Columbia, and something to be seen.
