About Our Board of Trade

The Greater Westside Board of Trade is the voice of business that advocates to all levels of government, offering member to member trade discounts, networking and promotional opportunities to all sectors of business.

Representing 400 Westside and nearby Okanagan businesses. The Board of Trade is here to serve your business needs and to ensure your success in the business community. Our offices are open 8:30-4:00, Monday through Friday with a friendly, open door policy whenever a member drops in to say hello. We value your feedback and are constantly seeking new ways to improve our programs and services. Please, NEVER hesitate to let us know how we’re doing!

One of the ways by which we offer our support is through ongoing events such as Business After Hours, Luncheons, Golf Tournaments, an Annual Awards Program and other educational and/or networking events organized by the Board of Trade. These events are a great way to stay current with business activities and showcase your business while networking and making connections with fellow Board of Trade members. Whether they are in West Kelowna, across BC or Canada, as we are proud members of the BC Chamber of Commerce and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
