The St. Lawrence Market Business Improvement Area is a non-profit organization whose membership includes every business and commercial property owner within the St. Lawrence Market Neighbourhood. (View our boundaries by clicking here.) We work cooperatively to improve the public realm, promote the neighbourhood and events, and support local business. The BIA boundaries extend from the East side of Yonge Street to the West side of Parliament Street, and from Lakeshore Boulevard up to just South of Queen Street.
Our mandate includes developing and implementing streetscape beautification including heritage lighting and signage, and promotional programs with a view to increasing business revenues and tourism in the area. The St. Lawrence Market BIA is actively working with area residents, government agencies and consultants to enhance the quality of the environment in which we work and live. These projects are financed through a levy, which is applied to all businesses located within the geographical boundaries of the BIA.
