West Harbour Village

About West Harbour Village

West Harbour Village is a 4-phase residential masterplan waterfront community. 


The Village is a multi-phase development located on Switsemalph Indian Reserve No. 7 near the District of Salmon Arm, Phase 1 of the Village and Phase 2 of the Village are single family residential homes. 


The Village may include any of the following uses: residential single family homes, residential multi family homes, assisted living facilities, a clubhouse, common areas and common property. 


As each phase is sold, the associated roads and landscaping will be completed (subject to seasonal limitations). The completion of the entire Village is dependent on market conditions.


The Adams Lake Indian Band approved the establishment of the Village in 1968 by approving a designation of the lands on which the Village is located. A designation is the formal process by which Band members approve leasing of reserve lands. A head lease (the “Original Head Lease”) was put in place and approximately 33 lots were leased under long term prepaid leases. The Original Subleases restricted ownership to adults over the age of 55 years.  


In 2008, the Band approved a new designation which would allow leasing on terms for CMHC insure mortgages for Phase 1 and Phase 2.
