ABOUT THE CITY
Meeting of the waters.
The name "Kamloops" means "meeting of the waters" because it is where the North and the South Thompson Rivers come together. Now, it can be where you come together with them for your future success.
A city of about 90,000, Kamloops is conveniently located at the junction of three major highways and an airport, and is just hours away from major hubs in BC, Alberta and the United States (and maybe even the place you call home). A few more things you may find interesting about Kamloops: It’s warm and dry, has affordable living, great skiing, lakes and hikes as well as a diverse community.
