The provincial government is adding more shelter spaces around the province, naming Kamloops as one of multiple cities receiving funding.

The new beds being added by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing are geared to help ease pressure on communities where existing shelters are running at or over capacity.

The other shelter beds are being set up on Ladysmith, Duncan, Salt Spring Island, Nanaimo, Prince Rupert, Fort St. James, Burnaby Chilliwack and Kelowna.
