What is a BIA
A Business Improvement Association is a non-profit association made up of commercial business owners and building tenants within a mandated business district. The BIA receives its funding from a special tax levied on property owners, similar to a Local Improvement Levy.
BIA board members are elected volunteer business owners from within the community, chosen at the Annual General Meeting in the month of February. Their funding is used to employ staff and implement initiatives to improve and better promote their business district.
