Our Plan

The BIA works with our partners in community, government and peer associations to enhance the vibrancy of the North Shore. Our ultimate outcome is a vibrant business community, which we believe is achieved by engaging and supporting our surrounding neighbourhooods. Also, we understand that whatever actions we take on the Shore, affects the whole city. This is why we work so closely with other business organizations to promote the Shore and Kamloops as a whole.
