My hometown was renamed a few years ago to "West Kelowna" from "Westbank". OSM has a result for "West Kelowna" but when searching for any places within "West Kelowna" no results are returned. Results do return for places within "Westbank", but this is not the correct name anymore.

Can this be corrected?

Have you got an example of what you're searching for? This seems to work for example:
