Almost 100,000 people call Kamloops, a city in south-central British Columbia, home. The city grew out of a former First Nations’ meeting place; a place where Cree and Shuswap tribes hunted and made camp as part of their tribal areas. By the early 1800s, Europeans discovered what these First Nations people already knew: this area was not only beautiful but had good, fertile ground that supported an abundance of wildlife.

These days, Kamloops ranks No. 37 in the largest metropolitan areas in Canada. Its primary industries are pulp and paper, as well as construction materials and mining. The city’s largest employer is RIH (Royal Inland Hospital). Over 10,000 students attend TRU (Thompson River University). The school boasts the largest distance education provider in B.C. and one of the biggest in Canada.

Europeans initially set up a trading post here because it was such a good transportation hub. That remains true today. The city’s connections to Highways 5 and 97 and the Trans-Canada and Yellowhead Highways make it a modern-day transportation hub particularly for businesses doing business in western and northern Canada.

One big advantage to living in Kamloops is the mild weather—by Canadian standards. Although above the 50-degree north latitude, residents enjoy warm summer days and mild winter months, even when compared to cities with lower altitudes. A big reason for this is that the city of Kamloops sits on the leeward side of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. This gives the city a semi-arid climate and helps keep winters mild and summers warm.

For outdoor enthusiasts and families, Kamloops real estate is both accessible and affordable. The price of detached homes in Kamloops is about $425,000, while condos are very reasonably priced at about $257,000, on average. Most properties will easily fit multiple cars as well as parking for boats or RVs. The exception to this would be the smaller homes in the city’s core.

Given the high cost of living in B.C.’s Lower Mainland, homes in Kamloops are a good value in the Canadian real estate landscape. What makes this even better is that the city’s economy is relatively stable given that major private enterprises, such as Tolko and Domtar, have large operations in this area.

Nearby Cities

Many buyers opt to purchase in a nearby city and commute to work. These buyers want larger homes and lots but with good commuter access to the Kamloops downtown core. Good options include Chase, Monte Creek, Savona and Logan Lake. Look for neighbourhoods that are closer to the highway or commuter train stations. Even cities that require a bit longer of a commute, such as Merritt, Monte Lake and Walhachin are good options as they offer more affordable detached homes.

Local Scoop

Outdoor enthusiasts know that Kamloops is a four-season destination. Whether it’s camping in the summer, fishing in the spring, mountain biking in the fall or snowboarding in the winter, the city has it all.

In the winter, a blanket of snow covers Kamloops. The city experiences fairly mild winters and that makes it an ideal spot for skiing and snowboarding on surrounding mountains. You can cross-country ski at Stake Lake, which offers both classic and skate skiing as well as night skiing along lit trails around the lake. For downhill skiing and snowboarding check out Sun Peaks Resort, located just an hour from Kamloops.

In the fall, you’ll find paddleboarders on the lake and fat-wheeled mountain bikers on the trails. The summer is dedicated to camping and hiking. But you don’t have to be a patch-wearing outdoorsman to enjoy what Kamloops offers.

Each fall, for instance, residents and tourists flock to the waters of Adams River. The draw is one of Mother Nature’s greatest spectacles: up to five million sockeye salmon finishing their epic spawning journey that started at the Pacific Ocean. The best free spot to view the fish-filled waters is at the Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park.

You can also take in a wine tasting tour at one of the wineries in the area. For instance, Harper’s Trail, the first winery to open in Kamloops, is a popular spot with a spacious tasting room amid a spectacular setting. Just keep an eye out for bighorn sheep, mule deer and bears.

Families will love Kamloops in the summer. There are railway festivals, fireworks on the lake, water parks to keep little ones amused and even zip-lining and whitewater rafting.
