About The DKA

The Downtown Kelowna Association (DKA) is a registered not-for-profit organization dedicated to ensuring that the Downtown Kelowna Business Improvement Area (BIA) is a safe and desirable place to conduct business, live, and work through cooperative efforts of its members and government.  Properties and businesses of Class 5 or 6 real estate within the BIA boundary are automatically a member of the DKA.

In North America, Downtowns are enjoying a resurgence in interest by citizens as they look for places where they can interact more with one another; walk more and drive less, and be recognized as vibrant, creative places.  Currently, there are more than 1,400 BIAs across North America and more than 70 in the Province of British Columbia.  These associations continue to build and enhance neighbourhoods through initiatives like advocacy, cleanliness, safety, business development, promotions, and events.

The DKA, officially registered in November 1989, is funded through a commercial taxation assessment levy paid by the property owners within the BIA to the City of Kelowna through the current Bylaw No. 10880. The annual levy becomes the Association’s base operating budget upon which the organization leverages additional funding from partners, including various levels of government and corporate sponsors, to support programs and initiatives.
