Hi, new to this, but hopefully I'll be a frequent visitor!

I want to move to Canada. I'm spending time in Canmore AB, and I love the place; the mountains, the activities, the amenities...
However as a place to take the plunge and move to I find that it's too expensive.
Would love to move to BC, but I really want to move to somewhere similar to Canmore, without the size-able amount of transient and tourist visitors pushing up the prices.
If anyone could give me any advice or recommendations, it would be greatly appreciated.
I'm not in any rush as my job keeps me away for months at a time

Thanks!
