Personal Information

Resident of: City Centre, North Kamloops
Current Occupation: City Councillor, City of Kamloops | Executive Director, Kamloops Arts Council

Political Experience:

Elected to City Council Sept. 30, 2017. Prior to that, I was an active volunteer and board director with various organizations and have led the Kamloops Arts Council since March 2012.


Kathy Sinclair was elected for one of two open council seats in the Sept. 30, 2017 City of Kamloops By-Election.
As comfortable with budgets as she is with community consultation and strategic planning, Kathy is first and foremost a problem-solver. Known primarily for her role as executive director of the Kamloops Arts Council, Kathy has been an active volunteer with many other local organizations since moving to Kamloops in 2011, including Literacy in Kamloops, the SPCA, Kamloops Power Choir, Interior CarShare Cooperative and the Rotary Club of Kamloops.
Kathy's interests are varied and include economic development, urban planning, active transportation, sustainability, personal and community health, affordability, accessibility, arts and culture, and respect for diversity.
Originally from Vancouver Island, Kathy has lived in Victoria, Vancouver, Ottawa, Kelowna, the UK, BC's Sunshine Coast, Mexico, and Dawson City, Yukon. She's happy to call Kamloops her home.
Kathy's work history includes non-profits, education, publishing and the tech sector. She is also a former freelance book and magazine editor who understands the challenges of running an independent business. Kathy holds a BA in creative writing from UVic and a Master of Publishing from SFU.
Kathy is honoured to serve Kamloops as City Councillor. As part of her role, she serves on the City's Community Safety Committee and is the City Liaison for the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association. She is also a director with the Kamloops Airport Authority Society Board.

During her first term on city council, Kathy demonstrated an unparalleled commitment to being open, transparent and approachable - all key components of a top-notch councillor. She understands the importance of balanced, thoughtful decisions and is able to envision a Kamloops that embraces its diversity rather than reject it. I look forward to seeing what Kathy will accomplish during her second term on council!

I've dealt with Kathy for many years and have always been impressed by her efficiency, communications and view point. A good candidate for Kamloops City Council.
