Business Improvement Areas

A Business Improvement Area (BIA) is a geographic area in a municipality that has a board of management and is set up to provide certain business promotion and improvement functions within that area. Of the more than 230 Business Improvement Areas in place across the province, Muskoka is home to three of them. Business Improvement Areas offer a self-help approach to revitalizing business districts. A BIA allows local business people and property owners to join together and with the support of the municipality, to organize, finance and carry out physical improvement and promote economic development in their region.
