With a population of around 5,500, Osoyoos is located in the Okanagan Valley on the Canada/U.S. border, at the junction of highways 3 and 97.

Originating as a lonely customs house in 1861, the town now boasts an excellent complement of facilities, services, recreational and cultural opportunities and business activities.
