About the Downtown Vancouver BIA

The Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association (DVBIA) supports, promotes and represents the shared interests of 8,000 businesses and property owners in the central 90-block area of Vancouver’s downtown core.

We focus on priorities voiced by our members: programs and services in the areas of advocacy, accessibility, cleanliness, beautification, business support, marketing and mobility. We represent our members’ shared goals, drive creative solutions forward and take meaningful action to constantly improve the downtown Vancouver experience.

We operate strategically at the intersection of downtown businesses, local policy-makers, non-profit organizations and all the people who make up Vancouver’s diverse neighbourhood communities.
