about DOSDC

welcome to the DOS Development Corporation

Mountains and lakes surround the southeastern corner of BC known as the Sicamous region. You may have heard about it from the lucky ones who have visited. Some of them passed through on their search for the perfect balance of work, life, recreation and opportunities and never left.

This means that the region is full of people just like you. They made the decision to locate in safe neighbourhoods with great schools, surrounded by unrivalled natural beauty and limitless outdoor activities.

The Sicamous region is home to many communities, some high in the mountains, some alongside beautiful lakes or rivers, others on fertile agricultural land.  All of them are unique.

Take a look at some of the places you could live via the links below and imagine your better life in the Sicamous.

Community profile

Conveniently located at the intersection of two major highway routes, the Trans-Canada Highway and Highway 97A, Sicamous connects travelers from the Lower Mainland and neighbouring Alberta to the sought-after destinations of the Shuswap and Okanagan.  

Sicamous offers a wide range of attractions and recreational opportunities based on proximity to both Shuswap and Mara lakes, and the surrounding wilderness terrain. A high proportion of tourism has supported the evolution of a diverse service industry with several restaurants, cafes and other related operations. Sicamous is also ideally situated with short commute times to Salmon Arm, Revelstoke and the Okanagan Valley, allowing easy access to a larger breadth of recreation and cultural activities and amenities.
