Why Engage?

Welcome to Let's Talk Kamloops—our 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, especially in this time of physical distancing. That's why we have this 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.
