City Administration

Chief Administrative Officer David Trawin

Welcome to the City of Kamloops Web site. The City employs over 640 employees engaged in services that range from Fire Fighters to Lifeguards, and from Gardeners to Heavy Equipment Operators.

Collectively we are committed to a goal of building a beautiful city and a quality of life that is one of the best in Canada.

Notice Our organization is governed by a 9 member Council which is elected every four years. Council appoints the Chief Administrative Officer to administer the operation of 6 Departments. The City also has major contracts for the provision of RCMP Services, Transit, Airport Services and a variety of arts and culture services including the Art Gallery, Community Theatre and a major Wildlife Park.

Our programs and service levels are guided by the Council Strategic Plan which sets out Council's goals, objectives and priorities. Our primary goals include managing the City's Infrastructure in a cost effective and safe manner, diversifying our economy, reducing our carbon footprint through sustainable strategies, maintaining our high quality of life and providing excellent service delivery by "Making Kamloops Shine" for our citizens.


We are proud of the fact that we are national and international winners of the "Communities in Bloom" competition, that we are one of Canada's top award winning public sector organizations, that we are known as Canada's Tournament Capital, that our sport and recreation facilities are the best in all of Canada for similar-sized cities and that our citizens believe we have an exceptionally high quality of life and who have repeatedly told us through over 20 years of surveys that they are satisfied with the services we provide. We believe that these factors make us one of the best places in all of Canada to live and our staff are very proud of the role they play in making it so!

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions about our organization.
