Welcome to Weston Village!
The Weston Business Improvement Area (BIA) acts as a unifying body for its membership and works on their behalf to make Weston Village a desirable destination to shop, work, and visit. The goals of the BIA include the revitalization and preservation of the Village through regular maintenance, facade improvement, streetscape, public art programs, special events and promotions, and municipal partnerships.
The Weston Village BIA is managed by a Board of Directors that is comprised of local business and commercial property owners as well as our Ward 5 city councillor. The Board of Directors is an elected body and elections are held every 4 years which coincide with the City of Toronto elections. Interested to join the board to support our community? We'd love to welcome you!
What is a BIA?
A Business Improvement Association (BIA) is an association of business and property owners who work together to support growth and development in their mainstreet core. All BIA's ultimately have the same goal – to increase traffic and sales in their local business district through the co-operation of each and every BIA member business and property owner.
Operations and Funding
The BIA Board of Management oversees the annual operating budget for the BIA. Each year a budget is established and is presented to the BIA membership at their annual general meeting. Once approved by the membership the budget is then submitted to the City of Toronto. A levy (tax) is then set by City and is applied to each property within the boundaries of the BIA. Every business within the BIA geographic area is automatically included in the BIA membership and contributes to the BIA budget through this special levy which is applied to their property taxes.
The Weston BIA employs a full time Coordinator as well as casual staff who help with our special events throughout the year. We are also looking for volunteers!
