Invest in McLure - Vinsulla

British Columbia, Canada



McLure and Vinsulla are both situated on the Yellowhead Highway between the City of Kamloops and District of Barriere. The North Thompson River serves as both communities’ western border and offers boat launches and sites to fish from onshore.

Both areas mainly consist of small acreages, farms, ranches and some smaller residential parcels. McLure houses a summer fruit and vegetable stand selling freshly picked harvest to travellers along the highway and has a local restaurant that is a famous stop for truckers, tourists and locals.

McLure is also the home to one of three river ferries in the TNRD. This small ferry transports vehicles between McLure and Westsyde road.   Access to the ferry is off of McLure Ferry Road that intersects with Highway 5.

McLure established a volunteer fire service with the TNRD in 1992 offering protection for all of McLure and a northern portion of Vinsulla. 

McLure and Vinsulla are within 45 minutes of Sun Peaks Resort which is an all seasons resort with downhill skiing/snowboarding in the winter and mountain biking/golf in the summer. Many lakes are also within close proximity for the swimming, boating and fishing enthusiasts.

For the most part, educational services are provided through the larger city centre, Barriere, however, residents generally travel to Kamloops for their shopping and cultural amenities.
