The Town of Golden was incorporated on June 26, 1957 and like most municipalities across BC, provides a range of essential, expected, and extended services and programs for residents.
The prominence of our historical forest and rail industries and Golden's designation as a Resort Municipality combine to create necessary services and amenities for those chose to live, work and play here.
Your municipal government is led by Town Council which is made up of a Mayor and six Councillors. Empowered by the Community Charter to be a governing body, Town Council must consider the well-being and interests of residents in its decision making, contribute to the evaluation of all policies and programs, participate in council meetings and carry out other duties they are assigned by legislation.
Golden is located in the traditional territory of the Ktunaxa and Secwepemc people. Golden is also the chosen home of the Métis Nation Columbia River Society.
