Adams Lake Indian Band

Adams Lake Indian Band (ALIB) is sectioned into seven areas, and has over 700 members. ALIB provides an extensive array of services to its membership, including a domestic water system and sewer system on Sahhaltkum IR#4. Adams Lake Band is home to a well-known language immersion school, Chief Atahm School. The majority of the administrative offices are located on IR#4, adjacent to the Village of Chase and overlooking Little Shuswap Lake. The Nexe7yÈlst/Pierre Moyese Centre on Switsemalph IR#6, near Salmon Arm, along with administrative functions, provides health and social services.

The Natural Resource Department is involved in Global Information System (GIS) mapping projects. The GIS Department provides mapping services to many regional clients and is expanding to include clients from other areas within the province. Adams Lake Development Corporation (ALDCO), owned by the Band, is undergoing a restructuring process which has already produced measurable benefits. The two largest ALDCO operations are: a 10,000 sq ft covered mill; and a large lakefront development, West Harbour Village.
