Economic Development in the South Shuswap

The South Shuswap region is a little piece of paradise conveniently located mid-way between Vancouver BC and Calgary AB. Our region starts just minutes west of Salmon Arm and reaches just 30 minutes east of Kamloops. Contact us to find out why so many businesses are now choosing the South Shuswap in which to establish their business.

Some like to think we’re in the middle of nowhere. We like to think we’re at the centre of all that’s good.

​The Shuswap is home to great lakes, warm water, sandy beaches, incredible houseboating, golf, skiing, music festivals, farmers’ markets, wineries, endless hiking trails and water sports. In the winter, discover the South Shuswap’s snowshoe, cross-country, ski and snow-hiking trails. Head out into the backcountry for ski and snowmobile fun or try your hand at ice fishing. Gather the family for a sleigh ride or an afternoon skate on one of our frozen scenic rinks.

Our four-season playground is calling for you to make yourself and your business at home in the Shuswap!


Shuswap Economic Development  Society (SEDS)  is a non-profit organization, providing economic development services in our region. 

The Economic Development Committee on our Chamber is pleased to share a highly collaborative relationship with the Society.
