Welcome to Boundary-Similkameen

I am honoured to serve you as the MLA for the Boundary, South Okanagan, and Similkameen and proud to serve the province as the Parliamentary Secretary for Rural Development.

My constituency office is active, though to be fair to all people across a large region, we are still working on an appointment basis.  You can get support from my team by calling (250) 498-5122 or emailing roly.russell.MLA@leg.bc.ca.  And remember to subscribe to our email updates if you’d like to stay connected: click here!

Take care, and stay safe,
