Osoyoos is located in one of the most unusual geographical regions in Canada.
The community lies in the shadow of the Cascade Mountains creating a hot, sunny, dry climate. For this reason, the area boasts its own climate zone called "Osoyoos Arid Biotic Zone." Canada's lowest annual precipitation, warmest annual temperature, and warmest fresh water lake can be found here. This arid zone is the northern tip of the Sonoran Desert which extends from Mexico into Canada.
It is biologically classified as Canada's only desert because of the unique flora and fauna that call the area home.
