Area Data :

The District of Barriere is located 66 kilometres north of the larger city of Kamloops on Highway 5. It is nestled in the North Thompson Valley surrounded by the Barriere and North Thompson Rivers. Barriere became one of BC's newest municipalities on December 4, 2007. Currently elected are Mayor Virginia Smith, Councillors Mike Fennell, Al Fortin, Donna Kibble, Pat Paula, Amanda Sabyan and Ward Stamer.

Barriere is partially driven by the forest industry however the other industries which serve the town are tourism and agriculture, primarily alfalfa. Mining development is on the increase in the North Thompson Valley, and it is predicted that many forestry workers will transfer from forestry to mining as these new development begin production. New businesses are starting to migrate to Barriere as the town grows with independent and sustainable resources.

Just 45 minutes away is an easy and scenic commute to Kamloops for work or to visit the hustle and bustle of the big city.

History :

The community derives its name Barriere (originally and alternately, Barrière) from the rocks/nets placed in the water by first nations people to act as fish traps, forming a barrier to boat passage on the river. The descendants of those placing the fish-trap barriers are from the Simpcw/Secwepemc Nation who still reside in present-day Chu Chua, just north of Barriere.

Gold was discovered in the area as early as 1861, and was mined using the placer method. The August 12, 1861 edition of the British Colonist mentions " ... one party of Frenchmen at a place above Kamloops called Barrier. They are fluming the Thompson, and expect to take out $25 per day to the hand, it is also incorporated.”
