Board of Directors
The West 4th BIA’s volunteer Board of Directors meet monthly to plan, guide and review the operations and promotions of the Kitsilano 4th Avenue Business Improvement Association. These business and property owners also generously devote their time to various Board committees and are proud West 4th BIA ambassadors, representing the benevolent work of our entire Association to our community, our City Hall and our guests who visit us from all over the world.
Our Directors each volunteer to Chair individual BIA-formed committees that help advance our specific retail categories and initiatives, including Outdoor & Active Lifestyle, Restaurant, Fashion, Home & Specialty, Business-To-Business and the Khatsahlano! Street Festival.
We sincerely thank our Directors both past and present and our merchant members for their dedication and service to our BIA Board and organization in building our amazing neighbourhood… Your vision got us here. We encourage all merchants to take an active role and participate in the process (and by participating, in making your business better…) by joining one of our Board or our committees!

How West 4th is Funded
The Kitsilano 4th Avenue Business Improvement Association is a not-for-profit organization entirely 100% funded by our commercial property owners and their merchants located on West 4th only between Fir Street and Balsam Street.
Each commercial property owner’s share of the annual BIA budget is proportionate to their share of the total taxable value within the BIA boundaries. In most lease agreements, commercial property owners pass on this cost to the business tenants.
West 4th BIA does not receive any government funding (civic, provincial or federal) to operate our organization. Absolutely no residential tax dollars from those who reside in Kitsilano, or elsewhere in Vancouver, fund our BIA. Every initiative, promotion and community enhancement project that we undertake on West 4th are directly paid for out of our own BIA members’ pockets.
