Invest in Tranquille Valley - Red Lake

British Columbia, Canada



Tranquille Valley is situated in the heart of beautiful B.C.’s southern interior just a few kilometres from downtown Kamloops. Tranquille is set in a lush scenic valley, at the confluence of the North Thompson River and the South Thompson River.

The City of Kamloops is the metropolitan hub of the Thompson, Nicola and Shuswap economic district with about 85,000 people residing within its municipal boundaries.

Tranquille on the Lake, a sustainable lakeside village and urban farm, is the most recent development opportunity in the area that aims to attract residents that value a peaceful lifestyle.

The Red Lake area is a scenic drive of 40 kilometers from Tranquille, following the Tranquille River through the canyon and into the uplands new Criss Creek. The area is home to a quality brook trout lake located approximately 50 kilometres northwest of the TNRD's largest city centre, Kamloops. The lake also holds some large rainbow trout that provide significant sport in the spring and the fall.

There are two basic routes into this popular lake. Both routes go through forest that is blessed with a lot of wildlife. These access routes are available through the City of Kamloops or the Skeetchestn Indian Reserve.

Naturally, given the expansion of available agricultural and farm lands throughout this area, the local economy is heavily reliant on the farming, agriculture and tourism industries.
