Oliver is located about 20 minutes south of Okanagan Falls and 15 minutes north of Osoyoos. The town population is close to 5,000 and with the surrounding area it is about 8,500. Oliver is known as the Wine Capital of Canada and continues to be ideal for growing wine grapes and producing among the best rated wines in the world. Of course, Oliver's mild year-round weather also makes it a great place to live for local residents. Agriculture is a main industry here with 400 plus farms and impressive vineyard acreages. There are several major employers in town, including the South Okanagan General Hospital, School District 53, and the Okanagan Correctional Institute.
