Kamloops - Thompson - Cariboo

The year 2017 marks 150 years since the Fathers of Confederation met in Charlottetown and Québec City and first dreamed of a united and prosperous Canada. Since that time we have built a country recognized on the world stage as a nation strong and free. This year will be a time to celebrate Canada’s rich history, diverse natural and cultural heritage, and many accomplishments. Not only will we celebrate Canada’s 150th, but we will also commemorate 100 years since the Canadian victory at Vimy Ridge, 50th anniversary of the Order of Canada and the 125th anniversary of the Stanley Cup. As the Member of Parliament for Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo, it is a distinct honour to serve in Parliament during this once-in-a-generation occasion. I encourage all Kamloopsians to join me in commemorating Canada’s sesquicentennial!

Peter Milobar Mayor

City of Kamloops

In 2017, we will commemorate the 150th anniversary of Canada. I am honoured to invite Kamloopsians to join together to participate in events and celebrate our accomplishments in this year-long series of occasions. Together, like most Canadians, we will be inspired to share in our stories of achievements, of brave individuals, and reflect on our diversity, our values, and our families and friends as we continue to demonstrate our strong commitment to community-building. I encourage all Kamloopsians to learn more about our rich heritage, across neighbourhoods in our community and surrounding region. As we express our community spirit and take part in this historic landmark year, we come together in the enjoyment and understanding of our shared history.

Keep Off river ice. River currents can quickly change ice thickness overnight or between parts of the river. Prepare a safety kit including: ice pick, rope, pocket knife, first aid items, whistle, fire starter kit, cell phone Escape plan for vehicles: open windows, unlock door, and turn on lights. Supervise children playing on or near the ice at all times.
