Notice of Poll

Poll Regarding:   Intention to expand Weston Village Proposed Expansion Business Improvement Area


On July 4, 2017 City Council stated its intention to pass a by-law to expand The Weston Village Business

Improvement Area to include all rateable property in a business property class north along Weston Road from King Street to Church Street.


A BIA is an association of persons who own rateable property in a business property class and all persons who are non-residential tenants of rateable property within a business property class within a defined area who work in partnership with the City to create thriving, competitive and safe business areas that attract new investment.  By working collectively, BIAs have the organizational and funding capacity to be catalysts for local civic improvement, enhancing the physical quality and economic vitality of their local neighbourhood.


The Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 19, Business Improvement Areas section 19-2.4. requires that a formal poll be conducted before passing a by-law to expand an existing BIA. The owner of the property to which this Notice relates shall give a copy to each non-residential tenant of the property within 30 days of receiving this Notice.   


Ballot Instructions:

  • A person receiving this Notice is entitled to submit ONLY ONE ballot regardless of the number of rateable properties or businesses owned by that person within the proposed area
  • Returned ballots will be treated in confidence and are subject to the provisions of the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA)
  • If you are a non-residential tenant of rateable property, please download and complete the Declaration and Ballot found at http://www.toronto.ca/polling/bia-polls.htm
  • Completed ballots must be received in the City Clerk's Office by 4:30 pm on or before October 06, 2017
