Canmore is located in the Bow Valley with a permanent population of ~12,000 It is located just east of Banff National Park, about 81 kilometres west of Calgary and immediately north of Kananaskis Country. The town lies in the Bow Valley, named so for the Bow River that passes through it. Its mountain setting is noted for The Three Sisters.
Canmore is a gateway community, complete with a busy center of town, lots of resort housing on the edge of Banff, and a good place to grab a bite to eat or to gas up on your way through.
