Kamloops’ Major Employers

The city of Kamloops and surrounding region enjoy a diverse economic base, not solely relying on any one sector to facilitate the city’s strong and steady growth. From well-established firms, some over 125 years old, and financial services to high tech and health care, the Kamloops lifestyle draws people to do business here, and the proximity, labour force and economic conditions allows for businesses to flourish. The city is also home to many exemplary post secondary institutions, which provide the vital education and hands on training programs for our existing business base to help them continue to grow and diversify.
