Nestled in the southern interior of British Columbia, Salmon Arm is an important city in the Shuswap area.

The population is slightly over 18,000 and fluctuates little.

Salmon Arm is part of the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District.The first fur traders arrived in the 1700’s.
First Nationspeople had occupied the area for several thousand years before that. During the gold rush days in the late 1800’s, prospectors panned for gold in the gravel bottom of the Salmon River.

Paddle wheelers taking miners to the north end of Shuswap Lake bypassed Salmon Arm.

After the last spike was driven into the transcontinental railway, thirty-three miles to the east, homesteaders started to come to the area.

Salmon Arm was incorporated as a city on May 15, 1905.

In 2005, a silver coin was minted to honor its centennial.
