The Junction BIA is looking to expand our boundaries west along Dundas St W to Runnymede Rd; and east to Annette St.

If you own a COMMERCIAL property and/or business on Dundas St W between Annette St. and Runnymede Rd. and are not a part of the JBIA, we want you to join us! Please see preliminary map below.

What is a BIA?

A Business Improvement Area (BIA) is an association of commercial property owners and tenants within a defined area who work in partnership with the City to create thriving, competitive, and innovative business areas that attract shoppers, diners, tourists, and new businesses. By joining the Junction BIA through a boundary expansion, more local businesses will have the organizational and funding capacity to be catalysts for civic improvement, enhancing the quality of life in their local neighbourhood and the City as a whole.

The benefits of joining a BIA include:

  •  
  • – Advocating on behalf of the membership as a unified voice
  • – Access to funding through the Commercial Facade Improvement Program
  • – Access to funding through the Digital Main Street Transformation Grant
  • – Assistance in dealing with the City regarding policies, permits, maintenance, and construction
  • – Streetscape improvements including tree guards, parkettes, murals, public art, street furniture, train lighting displays, pole banners & hardware, sidewalk cleaning, graffiti & poster removal, sidewalk maintenance and seasonal floral displays
  • – Safety, security and crime prevention initiatives
  • – Strategic plans for business recruitment, market studies and capital improvements
  • – Connection to The Junction brand and identity
  • – Participation in our annual signature event, The Junction Summer Solstice Festival
  • – Discounted advertising opportunities
  • – Website Member Directory listing
  • – Social Media presence
  • – Public Relations opportunities
  • – Stronger connection to the Media
  •  

The JBIA cannot move forward to include the whole of the Junction in the JBIA without your interest and engagement in this project. Please visit this link to complete a short survey about this possible expansion. You can also get involved in promoting the expansion by joining a Steering Committee.
