The purpose of the Similkameen Country Development Association is to increase awareness of the region’s location, highlight tourism assets and business opportunities, maintain Chamber of Commerce-like services and provide tourism and information services to the South Similkameen.

To run the Keremeos Visitor Information Centre, we receive funding from Destination BC and have a Service Agreement with the Village of Keremeos and Regional District Areas B & G. The Visitor Centre collects important visitor data, encouraging the development of tourism industry and the overall promotion of the community. The operation of the Similkameen Chamber of Commerce is funded solely through membership dues.

Our Board and staff bring a fresh perspective and innovative ideas to the organization, embodying a forward-thinking approach in all our endeavors. In recent years, we have implemented numerous policies and procedures to ensure accountability and transparency within our operations. Developing a comprehensive strategic plan represents the next crucial step in our commitment to strengthening our impact and fostering the continued growth and prosperity of the Similkameen Valley.
