Three Sisters Mountain Village (TSMV)

Community building is what TSMV is about, and its more than just building your home, it’s about building our neighbourhoods. Schools and daycares that care for our children. Access to safe, affordable housing for hard-working local families. Connecting people through trail networks, green spaces, sporting fields, outdoor adventures and community events. When done right, community building in a beautiful mountain landscape like Canmore’s encourages wellness and allows us to live near wildlife. It creates local employment and drives economic activity. Visitors to the town provide opportunities for local businesses by creating demand for hotels, restaurants, recreational amenities, grocery and retail stores.

Spring Creek

In Spring Creek you’ll find a vibrant thriving neighbourhood unlike any other in the Town of Canmore.

Located steps from Canmore’s busy downtown you will experience a sanctuary of cozy shops, art galleries and of course, a charming neighbourhood pub, The Mineshaft Tavern. With an active property owners’ association, highly walkable trails and bridges connected to the town of Canmore, plenty of places to gather and uplifting views around every corner, the neighbourhood design sustains the warm spirit of community that thrives here.

When you visit – when you experience Canmore mountain living – when you get to know the Spring Creek team and the people who’ve chosen to purchase homes here – you’ll know what we mean when we say Spring Creek is far more than a neighbourhood located at the heart of downtown Canmore…

Alexis McKeown

Is a Canmore-based portrait photographer, specializing in studio portraits and dance photography. She has a passion for showing her subjects their true beauty and for creating contemporary, magazine-style portraits for everyday people.

The beginning of Alexis' career as a photographer was in a dance studio. She has training as a classical dancer, and has worked as a professional dance photographer for over a decade. This informs her as an artist when it comes to photographing people in her portrait studio. Her dance experience has given her an ability to see line and form in an artistic way and to carefully direct her subjects in order to create the most beautiful images, regardless of someone's size, shape or age.

Alexis really believes that everyone deserves to have portraits of themselves that they absolutely love



2019 marks CanmoreAlberta.com’s 20th year of continuous operation as Canmore’s Community Portal.  Over the past 2 decades, Canmore has become one of Canada’s premier Rocky Mountain destinations.

Over that time, the internet has become a dominant force in our lives and a critical source for users to get information about our Canmore Communities: Business, Arts & Culture, Community Events, Community Organizations, Sport & Recreation, Community Services…and on and on. 

We have only one goal: to provide the “digital highway” for users to easily find their way into the heart of Canmore through our client’s on-line platforms; both web and social media. We send our users through our client’s “digital front door”.

Our success over the past 20 years is evident in 2 things; our client content ease of access by users, and our extremely popular live webcams. Between these, almost 2 million Canmore Alberta page views are the result annually, from across Canada, US, UK, Europe, and Austral/Asia markets.

Canmore’s future growth depends on continued internet exposure into these markets. So it is our unwavering commitment to our Canmore Brand, and all it encompasses, that we continue down this path we started 20 years ago.

Helene Rose Life Coach

Born in Toronto, Ontario Canada in 1962, Helen was shuttled between her birth mother and various foster homes eight times before her adoption at age four. She lived in rural Ontario with her adoptive parents: an alcoholic father and a cold, distant mother. In 1983, she struck out on her own and moved west to the Rocky Mountains of Alberta. She began her professional life with a major Canadian travel and tour operator.

A new chapter in Helen’s life began when her son was only three years old. She embarked on a 25 year career as an entrepreneur. In 2008, she published her first book 53 Grove Road, a stirring memoir of her struggle to survive the foster care system and her adoption into a dysfunctional family.

Today Helen shares her story with the hope that others can move forward with forgiveness and peace.


Mint Health and Drugs 

"Being a pharmacist in a small community has always been my dream. I love getting to know patients and providing them with advice to aid their healthcare decisions.

I look forward to Mint being the choice for friendly and knowledgeable service in the community."

Melissa Mauriello, Pharmacy Manager



Nestled in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Canmore, the Skin RNI Clinic was designed to help clients heal and rejuvenate their skin and to create beautiful healthy skin for life. First and foremost our mission is to educate and provide knowledge to our clients about their current skin condition and to utilize a holistic approach to bring the skin back into ultimate health. In order to rejuvenate the skin we need to look at the root causes and sources of skin inflammation. Over exposure to environmental stressors, nutritional and emotional stress are all contributors that create cumulative damage to our bodies and ultimately manifest as inflammatory conditions in our skin.

Our goal at Skin RNI, is to use a three tiered approach to bring skin back to health which includes utilizing a scientific state of the art approach to feeding the skin from the outside in, utilizing a therapeutic nutritional approach to healing the skin from within, and to support the healing of physical and emotional stressors in life.

“You truly can repair and regenerate your skin. Be good to your skin, you will wear it everyday for the rest of your life”

Carmen Edwards, BASc, FLT Skin RNI Founder and Owner
