Invitation: Small Business Roundtable

Small businesses play a crucial role in Toronto's economy and in our communities. Over 97 percent of the established businesses in the City of Toronto are small businesses that have between 1-99 employees. Our small businesses must be cherished as they offer flexibility, ingenuity and serve alternative or niche markets. Decision makers must create the best business climate possible to ensure small businesses have the opportunity to thrive.

We would like to personally invite you to take part in a consultation meeting that will provide you with an opportunity to network with other small businesses/business associations. This will be an occasion to discuss the city's role in addressing the challenges that small businesses face. Your participation is important, as it will provide input on how we can continue to cultivate growth and prosperity for business in the City of Toronto.

The Sunflower Project

In celebration of BD Beats, BIA business member @cobsdanforth (156 Danforth Ave.) will be spearheading ‘The Sunflower Project’ , a fundraiser in support of a Ukrainian family’s recent resettlement in Toronto. Vibrant solar powered sunflowers (the official flower of Ukraine) will be available beginning at noon on June 4 with proceeds going directly to the family. A group of volunteer youth will be selling the sunflowers for a minimum donation of $20 each at the BIA CafeTO parkette located in the curb lane enclosure in front of COBS. The goal is to sell one hundred sunflowers by 3pm. For those unable to attend but wishing to make a donation, please click below
