British Columbia Tourism Region : Thompson Okanagan
- This Dallas is named after neither Dallas, Texas, nor Alexander Grant Dallas, a notable HBC agent and director.
- It takes its name, instead, from Dallas Johnston (1887-1964), who farmed six miles east of Kamloops from 1902 until after World War II, when much of his land was purchased for Veterans' Land Act settlement.
- The name was chosen in 1955 by the settler veterans at a meeting called to decide upon a name for the community.
