About PAUL

Paul Keam has lived in the Sicamous area, with his wife Katherine for 38½ years. Both Paul and Katherine are staples in the community as Kathy drove the school bus the North Okanagan Shuswap school district for 38½ years! Paul volunteers on the Board of Directors for the Eagle Valley Rescue Society, in addition to being dispatcher/drone pilot for the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue in Sicamous.


Due to an impaired driver, Paul’s career of being a professional driver for 44 years was cut short, and thus he decided to dedicate his time and knowledge through being a certified driving instructor. He has been instructing for over three years and finds sharing his expertise extremely gratifying. Paul is qualified to instruct the 5/7 driving classes.
