Mayor's Message

Portrait of Mayor Ron Oszust

On behalf of the Town of Golden, its elected council and members of staff, I am pleased to welcome you to our town’s website.

Golden is a wonderful place to live; not only do our children want to stay here to work and raise their families, people come for a visit and stay for a lifetime.

The Golden area has a population of over 8,000, located on the Trans Canada Highway in south eastern British Columbia. We have a diverse economy that includes forestry, railway, tourism and more.

If you love the outdoors and amazing recreational opportunities, Golden cannot be beat. We also have an amazing cultural scene.

Although people travel to Golden from all over the world, and our ability to host global visitors is of the highest standard, our community retains a small town charm and friendliness that makes it a perfect place to live.

Golden community members have chosen these descriptive words:


This is who we are.

As the Mayor of the Town of Golden, I invite you to get to know us.


Ron Oszust, Mayor

Town of Golden
