The availability of water in the Okanagan valley is snowpack-dependent and a changing climate is resulting in greater extremes in weather and the availability of water. Extended periods of drought and flooding are expected to occur more frequently in this region. Responding to this ‘new reality’, the South Okanagan Real Estate Board in partnership with the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen has launched a new, digital, resource publication titled Building Climate Resilience in the Okanagan: A Homeowner’s Resource Guide.

Interwoven throughout the booklet are Syilx Okanagan Peoples perspectives. The Syilx Okanagan Nation was keen to participate in the guide to share their intergenerational knowledge of land, water, species and fire management for our shared region expressed in their own voice and language.
