Life in the Shuswap is never one-dimensional.

The Shuswap is a diverse area, midway between Calgary and Vancouver, made up of six economic development areas – the main urban centre of Salmon Arm, the town of Sicamous, and Columbia Shuswap Regional District electroal areas C, D, E and F.

Here, rural hospitality and urban amenities can be found side by side, and home can be a great place to do business too. Whether you choose country life or city life, the other is never far away.

We value hard work and a commitment to success – on the fertile land, in learning and skill building, in entrepreneurship and industry. We take pride in our communities and the people who live in them, and we try to make visitors feel at home.

The backdrop for all of this is unparalleled natural beauty and an agreeable pace. Towering cliffs, glistening lakes, lush forests, and rolling fields surround us and keep us inspired. It’s a great setting for a lifetime of exploring and of balancing work and play.

The Shuswap is a place where good things grow. Beautiful, casual and down-to-earth.
