What is a BIA?

A Business Improvement Area (BIA) is an association of local business people and property owners who work in partnership with the City to enhance their business area. This is accomplished through street and sidewalk beautification, marketing and promotional campaigns, street festivals, and implementation of crime prevention strategies. BIAs also act as a unified voice on behalf of its membership.

Toronto's 60 BIAs represent over 20,000 small businesses. The property they include is valued at over $4 billion which generates an annual tax base of $285 million. BIAs are catalysts for change and civic improvement and are also significant contributors to the City's economy and quality of life.

Toronto BIAs are members of an umbrella organization called the Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas . TABIA promotes upcoming BIA festivals and events, informs members about topical issues, and advances the goals and objectives of all BIAs.

The Sunflower Project

In celebration of BD Beats, BIA business member @cobsdanforth (156 Danforth Ave.) will be spearheading ‘The Sunflower Project’ , a fundraiser in support of a Ukrainian family’s recent resettlement in Toronto. Vibrant solar powered sunflowers (the official flower of Ukraine) will be available beginning at noon on June 4 with proceeds going directly to the family. A group of volunteer youth will be selling the sunflowers for a minimum donation of $20 each at the BIA CafeTO parkette located in the curb lane enclosure in front of COBS. The goal is to sell one hundred sunflowers by 3pm. For those unable to attend but wishing to make a donation, please click below
