Peachland is a district municipality of over 5000 residents in the Okanagan Valley. It is located on the west side of Okanagan Lake in British Columbia, Canada. It was founded in 1899 by John Moore Robinson, although the region had long been home to the Okanagan people. Peachland is approximately half an hour's drive south of the city of Kelowna and about a twenty-minute drive north of Summerland. The Okanagan Valley is very narrow in this area, and there are few terraces which mark former lake levels and the former lake bottom. As a result, the city is largely located on a steep sidehill. Like many areas in the Okanagan, Peachland is a rapidly growing community with new residents coming from all across Canada. Located across from Peachland is Rattlesnake Island, home of the legendary Ogopogo. Peachland is approximately 370 km from Vancouver, British Columbia on the BC South Coast.HistoryPeachland was founded on the location of a tiny community called Camp Hewett.GovernmentFederally, Peachland is within the electoral district of Okanagan—Coquihalla. The MP is Dan Albas elected in the 2011 Canadian Federal Election following Stockwell Days retirement from public life. The local MLA for the area is Dan Ashton. The municipal government of Peachland consists of the Mayor and six at-large councilors elected to three year terms. One of the former local councilors Jean Fraser was elected in 1995 and had served several consecutive terms. In her last election she received the highest number of votes in municipal history. Mrs. Fraser retired from Council on November 13, 2011 as she felt the work she could do on council was complete. The current Mayor is Cindy Fortin, who defeated Keith Fielding in the 2014 municipal election.
