For 25 years, the Eagle Valley Community Support Society has risen to the challenge of supporting those who are disadvantaged in anyway in Sicamous and the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) Area E.   The organization has an office in Sicamous and a satellite office in Malakwa, providing life span services that include pre and post natal, early intervention and activity programs for young children, parenting support, counselling for all ages, food security and nutrition education, seniors support services, resource referral and literacy supports.  We house outreach IH Addiction services, MCFD Child Protection Services and other outreach services as needed.   We manage the senior non medical support program Better At Home for the Shuswap region with in-community Coordinators in 3 regional Shuswap areas and 1 Shuswap/N OK region (Enderby).

Sicamous and catchment area is defined by the Municipality of Sicamous and the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) Area E. The approximate permanent population is 2,700.

Sicamous is primarily a tourism based economy with some agriculture, manufacturing and wood milling year round.
The community’s healthcare needs are serviced by:

  • Medical and Dental Clinics
  • Public Health Unit
  • Ambulance Station
  • RCMP Station
  • Heliport Field
  • Optometrist
  • Chiropractor

The community has four levels of Seniors housing from independent up to Assisted Living.  The Eagle Valley Volunteer Transportation Society provides transit. There is a  Recreation Centre supported by both the CSRD and the Municipality.
