City Council

Bold Leadership for a Strong, Inclusive, and Healthy Community

The City of Kamloops is governed by an elected Mayor and eight Councillors for a four-year term on City Council, which represents the City at large and our residents. Our Mayor and Council set priorities, establish policies, and make decisions for the community as a whole. Mayor and Council are responsible for setting the tax rate, approving the City’s budget and determining overarching service levels. The current Mayor and Council were sworn into office on November 1, 2022, and will serve until Fall 2026.

Council Strategic Plan 2019-2022

The Council Strategic Plan 2019-2022 was created by the Mayor and Council of the 2018-2022 term. In the plan, Council identified four strategic priorities—Governance and Accountability, Livability, Vibrant Economy, and Environmental Leadership—and values to guide their work: Respect, Collaboration, Teamwork, Optimism, Trust, Accountability, and Innovation. The Progress Report identifies the strategic and operational work completed in the first half of Council’s term to deliver results on these priorities. The new Council will work together to update the Council Strategic Plan in early 2023.
