A Business Improvement Area (BIA) is an association of local business people and property owners who work in partnership with the City to enhance their business area. This is accomplished through street and sidewalk beautification, marketing and promotional campaigns, street festivals, and implementation of crime prevention strategies. BIAs also act as a unified voice on behalf of its membership.
Toronto's 60 BIAs represent over 20,000 small businesses. The property they include is valued at over $4 billion which generates an annual tax base of $285 million. BIAs are catalysts for change and civic improvement and are also significant contributors to the City's economy and quality of life.
Toronto BIAs are members of an umbrella organization called the Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas . TABIA promotes upcoming BIA festivals and events, informs members about topical issues, and advances the goals and objectives of all BIAs.

the Broadview Danforth BIA extends along Danforth Ave. from Hampton Ave. to Broadview Ave. and along Broadview Ave. north to Pretoria Ave., and south to Dearborne Ave.
