THE CHAMPIONS OF BC's MAIN STREETS

Formed in 1991 to assist and promote the BIA movement in British Columbia,
Business Improvement Areas of British Columbia (BIABC) is the provincial
champion of strong, vibrant and successful downtowns, main streets and
commercial districts throughout our province.

These relationships enable BIABC members to access tools that will help shape and enhance neighbourhoods, save money and source local BC solutions and perspectives using a global network of urban developers and contacts.
