Flooding in Parts of BC
Parts of British Columbia have been impacted by heavy rain and flooding, causing highway closures and travel restrictions for impacted areas. Some of the highways normally used to reach Boundary Country are impacted to ensure the movement of essential goods and services. While Boundary Country is not experiencing flooding, visitors are encouraged to be familiar with their intended travel routes. Boundary can currently be safely & reliably reached via Highway 33 southbound from Kelowna, Highway 3 westbound from Calgary and Highway 97 northbound from Washington. Motorists are advised to avoid non-essential travel via Highway 3 eastbound from the lower mainland.
We encourage visitors to stay up to date with the latest information before and during their trip so that informed travel decisions can be made. Also, we encourage visitors to check in with their accommodation providers, as well as the Visitor Centres listed below. Here are some other online key resources to help travellers out:
The current travel conditions and regulations are very fluid at the moment, and as a result, can change fairly quickly. Updates will be monitored by Boundary Country and our businesses/business partners but we encourage potential visitors to stay as up-to-date as possible when planning a trip. Also, visitors are recommended to become acquainted with cancellation policies of bookable experiences as there is no uniform standard during this time.
Refer to our Service Directory where all businesses can be found. If a business is temporarily closed it will be noted with a closed image.
