About Us / Board of Directors

A BIZ (Business Improvement Zone) is a group of businesses joined together to market their business district, sponsor events, and improve physical amenities. The BIZ is also a voice in the political sphere on issues of concern to the area. The West Broadway Business Improvement Zone represents over 100 businesses in the area and is committed to the overall enhancement of this vibrant neighbourhood. Every retail, commercial and professional business in the zone is automatically a contributing member. The BIZ is funded by a special levy on business taxes, which provides the funds to meet our goals each year. The BIZ management board consists of elected representatives of the businesses in the area. Programs and budgets are prepared and approved first by area business representatives at the AGM and then by City Council. The BIZ is like the fourth level of government.

We run programs targeting image, cleanliness and safety to respond to the needs of the business members, residents and all visitors to the area. Our streetscaping program supplies planters and flowers, bike racks, holiday wreaths, white lights, community signboards and benches.

Currently the BIZ offers numerous programs to assist businesses in improving their storefront and building exterior and safety lighting. The BIZ also partners in a year round graffiti removal program at no cost to our business and residential members. If you have been tagged, please call the TAG Team at 954-7900.

The BIZ is always looking for feedback. We would love to hear from you. Please contact us with any questions, concerns, and comments. Get involved! We are always looking for new committee members. Currently we have three great committees to choose from, Marketing, Streetscaping, and Safety.
