Kamloops has always been an epicentre for business. Dating back to the fur trade and the gold rush era in the mid-1800s, the area experienced massive growth. When the settlers came, the railway expanded, and the overlander’s arrived, the city grew fast. Originally named Cumcloups, meaning ‘meeting of the waters,’ by Alexander Ross, who was part of the Astoria Fur Company, the area was known for its strong industry and became a hub. Kamloops was incorporated in 1893, and North Kamloops became a separate town in 1961. In 1967, the two were amalgamated. Kamloops is still the service centre for cattle-ranching and lumbering in central BC. Other significant industries in the city include livestock marketing, tourism, wood and pulp processing, and food canning and packing. The excellent location and having the Trans-Canada highway pass through the city is enormous for the tourism industry. Many people pass through Kamloops on their travels, and it’s a great place to stop for a meal or gas along the way.
