On behalf of the Downtown Yonge community, the B.I.A. is a non-profit organization that creates or advocates for vibrant area events, provides on-street clean and safe services, produces capital improvement streetscape projects and promotes the neighbourhood through branding and marketing initiatives.

The Downtown Yonge B.I.A. was formed on June 26, 2001. Members include approximately 2,000 local businesses and property owners. Funding for the Downtown Yonge B.I.A. comes from a supplementary tax levied on all commercial buildings within its boundaries. The City of Toronto collects this money and returns it to the community to fund local services and improvements.

Whatever interests you, the Downtown Yonge area has something for everyone. Within the area, you will find several tourist destinations, over 600 retail stores, 150 restaurants and bars, 8 hotels, 4 theatres, and the outdoor entertainment hub, Yonge-Dundas Square.
