Imagine your new life in the Shuswap
Nestled between Vancouver and Calgary rests a picturesque community waiting for you to call home!
The Shuswap is a district of British Columbia, Canada, that covers a number of quiet communities within reach of Shuswap Lake. Located on the north tip of wine country and smack dab in the middle of lake country, the Shuswap is a popular destination for avid adventure seekers and those wanting to escape the city for somewhere that feels a bit more West coast because of the natural landscape and vegetation that boasts 4 solid seasons.
An iconic example of what “the great outdoors” means, the Shuswap is connected to a network of surreal hiking trails, waterways, and hot springs in the region. That has attracted many artisans to the area, sharing their talents with the local communities. You can find craft breweries, coffee roasters, woodworkers, artists and more practicing their trades and celebrating their work throughout the communities.
Salmon Arm, the “small city of big ideas”, is the largest city in the district with a population of 19,000 residents, is a popular tourist destination given its amenities and closeness to the great Shuswap Lake. There is more than 400 kilometers of shoreline and twenty provincial parks around the Shuswap Lake, offering nearly endless exploration for those inclined. For families, there are a range of well ranked public and private schools in the area covering K-12. With the population and job market in Salmon Arm rapidly growing, despite its small size and in 2019 Macleans rated it the best community to live in BC, and fifth best in Canada!
And I can tell you, everyone here is so damn nice!
