Director of Economic Development & Tourism

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Economic Development Page for the Town of Princeton British Columbia.  The Economic Development Department is the primary source for information regarding the pro-business environment you will find in Princeton British Columbia.

We are committed to working closely with the existing business community as well as those contemplating new investment and/or relocation to Princeton, BC.

As the Western starting point of the Similkameen Valley, Princeton is perfectly located an hour from the South Okanagan and three hours from Vancouver. In addition to its location and pro-business environment, you will find that Princeton is a community that affords a quality of life second to none.

Abundant and diverse outdoor recreational opportunities, strong public schools, and an impressive health care facility are just some of the things that make Princeton a great place to work, live and play.

Again, thank you for browsing the Princeton Economic Development page. If you have questions or desire more information, please contact me directly at I look forward to the opportunity to visit with you personally.


Best regards

Gary Schatz

Director of Economic Development
