NKBA BC History
In August 1988, the NKBA Northwest States Chapter hosted a Chapter Weekender in Victoria, BC. Attendees were treated to knowledgeable industry speakers and exciting seminars, along with some fun social events, including a tour of Butchart Gardens. At that point it time the only other Canadian Chapter was in Ontario, but because of the success of the weekend, the seeds were planted to consider a 2nd Chapter in Canada.
In early September 1988, a local steering committee was formed to discuss planning a formal meeting to get the process started. On January 26th, 1990, we were officially formed as the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s 36th Chapter, with a total of 38 members listed on the Chapter. In 1995, the NKBA Prairie Provinces Chapter was formed, and our name was changed to the NKBA British Columbia Chapter.
The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) is a non-profit trade association that promotes the professionalism of the kitchen and bath industry.
Established in 1963 as a network of kitchen dealers, it has grown into the premier association of distributors, retailers, remodelers, manufacturers, fabricators, installers, designers, and other professionals.
The NKBA’s certification program emphasizes continuing education and career development. The NKBA has become a valuable resource for both professionals and consumers.
