Lister, British Columbia is a small community in the Kootenays region of British Columbia, Canada. It is located 10 miles (16 km) southeast of Creston and is just north of the Canada–US border.

Originally known as Camp Lister, it was established by Colonel Fred Lister after World War I as a soldier's settlement. Fred Lister later became the MLA for the Nelson-Creston riding. The community's name officially changed to Lister on November 29, 1984.[2] Lister is the closest community to the Bountiful commune.
