About the BIA

The Downtown Williams Lake Business Improvement Association (Downtown Williams Lake BIA) is funded by downtown class 5 and 6 property owners via a levy collected by the City of Williams Lake.  Our purpose is to create vibrancy and prosperity within our boundary:  area map

We are governed by a Board of Directors, and the office is managed by an Executive Director.

Every class 5 and 6 property owner within our boundary, and every tenant renting from these owners, is a BIA member.  BIA members can apply to sit on our Board of Directors and have voting rights at our AGM.



To enhance our dynamic and flourishing community, with downtown at its heart.


We support our mission with the spirit of collaboration, integrity, and respect, and with a deep-seated sense of community.


As the heart of the Colourful Cariboo Culture, we will become a highly prosperous and socially desirable business, multicultural, and recreational destination.
