Why Engage?

Welcome to Let's Talk Kamloops—our new engagement website where you can share your voice and shape our city.

We know you have ideas about our city, and we are committed to working more closely with you to improve engagement and better guide our planning and decision making.

In 2019, the City hosted more than 60 different engagement events, from open houses to budget consultations to neighbourhood meetings. But we recognize that face-to-face engagement isn't always possible. That's why we are trying this new website—to make it easier for you to learn about the City activities, strategies, and programs that are important to you. Here, you can connect to the City at any time on matters where community input would help shape our city.

Sign Up. Speak Up.

    • City Council
    • City of Kamloops staff

    The committee met for the first time on Thursday, May 3, 2018, to review the City’s expectations and goals of the committee, gather background information about the production and management of biosolids, and develop pre-screening criteria that will be used to review biosolids management options from around the world and determine their viability for the City of Kamloops. The Committee’s next steps will be to evaluate the options that meet the pre-screening criteria and then establish a triple bottom line evaluation: economic, environmental, and social impact. Information on the progress of the Biosolids Stakeholder Committee can be found at www.kamloops.ca/biosolids.

    The committee will also determine the best way to solicit feedback and input from the public to ensure that residents have an opportunity to provide input on the long-term strategy. Residents who would like to stay informed on the process can subscribe to the “Kamloops Biosolids Management Plan” newsletter at www.kamloops.ca/subscribe.

    Kamloops, BC – The City of Kamloops received a Community Excellence Award for Social Responsibility from the Southern Interior Local Government Association last week for its housing engagement strategy.

    The housing strategies and initiatives undertaken by the City help to ensure Kamloops maintains a high quality of life while meeting the challenge of a growing community by securing land for the provision of housing within the community to ensure that all residents have access to safe, secure, and stable housing. The City has undertaken extensive engagement opportunities with various partners and stakeholders, as well as conducting thorough housing needs analyses to identify possible solutions. These initiatives include the launch of the Extreme Weather Response Shelter at Stuart Wood Elementary School, plans to develop modular housing units on both the south and north shores, and the launch of the new mini-storage facility in the Downtown.

    “Our staff have been working extremely hard on developing a strategy to address housing in Kamloops. I’m proud of their efforts and am pleased that they have been recognized by the Southern Interior Local Government Association,” commented Mayor Ken Christian.
