What's Included

The B.C. Fruitlands, now,the North Shore communities of North Kamloops, Brocklehurst, Westsyde and Noble Creek, was one of a number of ventures aimed at irrigating and the developing the interior of British Columbia for growing fruit in the early 20th century. Their goal appeared to be to transform the Interior of British Columbia into a major fruit production centre. However, many of these ventures struggled to maintain viability due to a variety of factors, including falls in market prices, the Great Depression, two world wars, and lower immigration to the province. This talk will provide a history of B.C. Fruitlands through the documents in the British Columbia Fruitlands collection, which focus on the early development and financial history of the British Columbia Fruitlands Company, the British Columbia Power & Irrigation Company and the North Kamloops Syndicate.
