Often referred to as Canada’s desert, Osoyoos have the warmest weather in the whole of Canada. This beautiful small town is located in the southernmost part of Okanagan Valley, between Omak and Penticton. Osoyoos is just a few kilometers from the United States border with Washington.

The name Osoyoos was coined from the word swiws, which means “narrowing of the waters” in the native Okanagan language.

Osoyoos has a population of about 6000 but the figure shoots up during summers because of the influx of tourists from other parts of Canada and across the world. Also, about 800 people live in the Osoyoos Indian Reserve, and about 1800 people are inhabiting Electoral Area A, an area around Osoyoos.

Before Europeans came to the Okanagan Valley, there is evidence that showed that aboriginal people have occupied Osoyoos some thousands of years ago. The first set of Europeans that visited Osoyoos were some fur traders that worked for an American fur company in the 18th century. In the past, the Okanagan Valley was a major fur trade route for Asian and European markets, but it saw an end to it in 1860 when the gold rushes in British Columbia started.

Due to the array of businesses in the Okanagan Valley, a custom house was constructed in Osoyoos in the year 1861, having John Haynes in charge of tax collection. When the railway arrived in 1946, Osoyoos became a village. Four years after becoming a village, Osoyoos was incorporated as a town.
