NKBA Ottawa Chapter

Established in 1963, the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) is an international non-profit network of kitchen and bath professionals. The NKBA Ottawa Chapter connects the area’s leading designers, manufacturers, installers, distributors and retailers.

NKBA Ottawa works to bring a general awareness of what the Kitchen and Bath industry can contribute to consumers and to local industry members. We also foster continuous renewal of the industry by mentoring students of Algonquin College’s Kitchen and Bath Graduate Certificate Program, and funding Achievement Awards for selected graduates.

The annual NKBA-Ottawa Design Excellence Competition is a popular event to share latest trends and best practices with the general public, and to recognize excellence within our industry.
