A new expanded downtown college campus would stimulate the local economy and help diversify population growth while providing Salmon Arm with a growing clean industry.

The positive socio-economic benefits the campus would offer could potentially double or triple our current enrolment, injecting conceivably up to 1,000 new students each year into the community. The campus would also provide a much-needed economic boost during our historic shoulder season (September-May).
