Relax while working in BC’s four-season destination.


Map of British Columbia

The Thompson Okanagan region is located in Southern BC, and spans from the highest mountain peak in the Canadian Rockies, through plentiful orchards and brilliant vineyards, down to Canada’s only true desert, connecting with the USA border. From beach bum to ski bum, the Thompson Okanagan region is BC’s four-season destination.


Work in BC's four-season destination where you can: 

  • Create a memorable experience serving a variety of local wines.
  • Welcome guests to a relaxing lakefront or golf resort.
  • Develop lasting friendships working at an exciting ski resort.
  • Work on your tan while leading boat tours, parasailing rides, or epic zip-lining adventures. 
  • From farm to table, prepare authentic meals with BC’s freshest ingredients at four diamond restaurants.

Student Housing Options for Summer

The Thompson Okanagan region rivals California’s Napa Valley and Australia’s Clare Valley for its world-class wineries and warmer temperatures. Scattered with smaller communities, the region provides many opportunities for remote, outback adventures. Unlike the rest of BC, the Thompson Okanagan region has hot summers and mild winters, creating the perfect atmosphere for relaxing in the sun and playing in the winter.
