Community Description

The Okanagan First Nation people have lived in this region from time immemorial. The Osoyoos Indian Band people honour the hard working, self-supporting lifestyle of our ancestors by developing our own economy through our business initiatives.
Through leases and joint ventures we have built meaningful business relationships that have created social and employment opportunities for both natives and non-natives in the South Okanagan. The Chief and Council of OIB are business people, and we desire to develop more business opportunities.
