Building a Thriving Community through Attainable Housing

What makes the North Okanagan feel like home? Whether it’s knowing that you have access to healthcare or a vibrant small business community, housing plays a critical role in shaping the fabric of our community.



When we have more housing options, we can welcome people who are essential to our workforce—contributing to everyday healthy living and the services we all enjoy.
