Originally started in 1981, the York-Eglinton BIA was reformed in 1999 by a smaller group of business owners to re-establish a voice for the business community in partnership with the City of Toronto.

Upon the success of revitalization the group looked to regain the business owners and landlords’ confidence and support by improving the area for the residence and shoppers. This began a new value program to upkeep the look and image of individual stores and the surrounding area. The goal was to create a greater pride on Eglinton Ave. W. toward the York-Eglinton BIA.

The BIA Office is continuously developing ideas to compliment its mandate of promoting the area as a business and shopping district.
