West Broadway BIA

The Heart of What We Do

The West Broadway Business Improvement Association (WBBIA) consists of businesses and property owners on West Broadway from Collingwood to Larch St. Our volunteer board members are committed to enhancing the vitality of the business community by developing initiatives that enhance and benefit our area, from promoting small businesses and local events, to streetscape projects and developing community partnerships.

Citywideprovincially and internationally, BIAs are dynamic organizations providing programs ranging from marketing, street beautification, safety and security and business relations.

The WBIBIA and its merchants are host to many exciting events, promotions and fun activities all year round – and these are just a few reasons millions of people visit Kitsilano on West Broadway each year!  Here is information about our local projects and community partners.

As a newer BIA relative to others in the city, the WBBIA operates with one staff and smaller budget, and we optimize resources through partnerships and collaboration.  We partner with Vancouver BIAs on advocacy and citywide initiatives to support local businesses, and co-chair the Vancouver BIAs marketing committee with the West 4th BIA.  Here is a presentation of collaborative initiatives, implemented in the city and beyond!
