The City of Kamloops' economy is strong and diverse. Forestry, mining, ranching and agriculture have always anchored the economy of Kamloops and now the emerging areas of technology, bioenergy, sustainability, tourism, and manufacturing are strengthening this business base and contributing to the city's dynamic growth.
With its well established transportation, infrastructure and its growing university, Kamloops is attracting and supporting an ever increasing number of large businesses and major corporations in every sector. The accessibility to markets, the unparallel natural environment, the cosmopolitan urban areas and unique lifestyle all play a factor with doing business in Kamloops.
Kamloops is home to various levels of government including municipal, regional, provincial and federal offices. There is one MP representing Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo in the Federal Government and two MLA's representing Kamloops in the Provincial Government. The Government of Canada has many agencies located here to serve the public which include the Ministries of Agriculture, Fisheries, Health, and Service. There are also many Provincial Government agencies in Kamloops including Service BC, which offers a variety of provincial services for residents, and a new Wildfire Coordination Centre that is currently under construction at the Kamloops Airport. The centre, scheduled to be completed in time for the summer of 2010, will be responsible for the entire province's aviation services, fire weather forecasting, and the existing air tanker dispatch. Kamloops is also the main centre in the Thompson Nicola Regional District (TNRD) with numerous regional head offices choosing to locate here.
Venture Kamloops acts as a confidential liaison between clients, companies, local governments, educational institutions, workforce, development agencies, industry associations and business leaders.
