The School District

In School District No. 58 (Nicola-Similkameen), we recognize that we learn, teach and work on the ancestral, traditional and unceded territories of the Nle?eKepmx and Syilx people, and we acknowledge our Métis communities and their contributions to the Aboriginal ways of being, knowing and doing.

Our Strategic Plan has a “Success for ALL Learners” focus, supported by a dedicated staff, engaged rightsholders and partners who share a genuine commitment to the district.  The district offers rich programming to just over 2400 students, 48% of whom are Indigenous. We are proud of our work towards Truth and Reconciliation and are committed to continuing this important work.  The district serves the two communities of Merritt and Princeton, six First Nations Bands, the Métis and the Conayt Friendship Society. 

The Communities

Merritt, where the office is located, is in the Nicola Valley and is the hub of a highway system that links Kamloops, Kelowna, and the Lower Mainland. Ranching, forestry, and tourism are the major industries in the valley. Merritt’s affordability, proximity to larger urban centers and its abundant recreational opportunities in all four seasons make it an ideal place to live.

Princeton is in the Similkameen Valley and is a year-round centre for outdoor recreation. A small rural community that makes a big impression. Hiking trails, historical sites, festivals, and events combine with local hospitality to make for a great place to live.

The combination of good working conditions, strong community support for schooling, and excellent recreational amenities makes these areas a highly desirable location to live and work. 


Your application package must include a complete resume, including supporting documentation and a minimum of three (3) professional references.  For further information about this exciting career opportunity, please contact Dylan Richardson, Secretary Treasurer at 250-378-5161.
