    What is a Business Improvement Area?

    A Business Improvement Area (BIA) is a geographic area in a municipality composed of property owners and business operators. The Roncesvalles Village BIA is managed by an elected Board of Management of 18 volunteers, plus the local Councillor, plus community representatives. The legislation regulating Business Improvement Areas is set out in sections 204-215 of the Municipal Act.

    A BIA allows local business people and property owners to join together to

    • improve, beautify and decorate the streets and buildings within the BIA
    • promote the area as a business and shopping area
    • recruit new businesses
    • host special events

    The BIA is funded by the property owners through a special levy, calculated proportionately for each property based on its assessed value.

    Toronto presently has 72 BIAs, and they are supported by the Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas (TABIA), which is the umbrella organization for Toronto's BIAs.
