Sparwood is a Rocky Mountain community and that is abundant with ambition and drive, welcoming of hard work and determination. It is a community with many facets, home to people from many backgrounds

Originally a collection of five coal mining communities, however, during the 1960s, the communities were consolidated into one area or District, called Sparwood, in homage to the history of trees harvested in the area intended for use as masts on ships.

Located in the beautiful Elk Valley and conveniently central to Teck Coal’s five metallurgical coal mines Sparwood offers convenient access to work and play for people with a keen interest in the outdoor lifestyle.
