The Kelowna Chamber of Commerce was incorporated as a non-profit society in 1906. To fit an evolving business world, various revisions to our By-laws have been tabled and adopted by our membership over the years.
Our Chamber is legally registered with Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada, a federal body. Once a change to our By-laws are proposed, the government approval process takes six months to a year. Specific decisions and actions not detailed within established bylaws are further clarified in The Board of Directors Policy Manual
The Kelowna Chamber of Commerce is guided by its bylaws as approved by its members under the Federal Board and Trade Act.
