Councillor Ken Jamieson
Biography
Ken was born and raised in Salmon Arm and graduated from Salmon Arm Senior Secondary in 1976. Over the years, he has visited much of Canada, the United States, Central America, Britain, Ireland and Europe. He lived in Ontario and Alberta for a time, but regardless of where he lived, Ken always maintained roots in Salmon Arm.

Ken has a varied and diverse employment background with BC Tel, Northern Plastics, the forestry industry and spent six years as a commercial diver.

He graduated in 1994 from the University of Victoria and Malaspina College with a bachelor's degree in English and history and a bachelor's degree in education, majoring in elementary curriculum.

Shortly after graduation, Ken and his family returned to Salmon Arm, where he has been a teacher for 15 years. Ken’s previous experience on Council from 1987 to 1988 has provided him with a unique perspective on current issues in our community.

Ken and Pamela have been married 25 years and have three children - Hannah, Grant and Nash. Ken loves to travel, read, play hockey, officiate high school basketball and spend time with his family, including new grandchildren.

A sense of community has always been important to Ken and he values the cooperative spirit that Salmon Arm residents possess. He looks forward to the possibilities that lie ahead for our City and is proud to call Salmon Arm home.
