Kentville and the Cornwallis Inn by Peter Gordon

The Kentville Business Community (KBC) was originally incorporated as the Kentville Development Corporation Limited in 1980 and reactivated in 2013 with a new mandate and Board of Directors.  It is here to represent the collective interests of the downtown businesses that call Kentville their home.

KBC works with and for the business community, acting in both an economic development role as well as an advocacy role.  It is the mandate of KBC to stimulate economic growth, capitalize upon and develop opportunities, and address business concerns.  The organization is governed by a board of directors who are drawn directly from the business community.

KBC’s vision is for Kentville to be the vibrant, diverse business and professional centre of the Valley. To do so it must rely on an involved and energized community that works together for the betterment of the Town. We encourage all businesses to utilize the support offered by KBC.  Together, we can continue creating a bright and prosperous future for Kentville.
