The Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association

The Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association (KCBIA) was established in 2002. To keep it simple we market ourselves as Downtown Kamloops. Since our inception, the KCBIA has been an advocate for downtown, articulating member concerns on a full range of issues, while at the same time capitalizing on opportunities to better position our downtown in the minds of residents and visitors. Our work has focused on making a difference for our business and property owners, offering programs to help improve efficiency and effectiveness, programming and supporting festivals and events and promotion of the downtown’s numerous businesses, events and activities.


The Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association provides value to our members through advocacy, beautification, promotion, development and preservation of Downtown Kamloops.


A vibrant and livable Downtown that is the focal point of Kamloops
