About the Downtown Brampton BIA

The Downtown Brampton BIA promotes the commercial area as a vibrant business and shopping district. Through the use of promotional activities such as special events, advertising, and beautification programs, we aim to keep the area foremost in the public’s mind as an attractive, pleasant place to shop, to be entertained, to work, and to live. The BIA strives to make the quality of life for our Downtown businesses and services better.

The organization is a not-for-profit association where the property owners, and commercial tenants who pay a portion of the property tax, pay a special levy that funds the organization. These funds constitute the organization’s budget and allow the Board and their sub committees to execute programs and events with great volunteer support of the membership on behalf of all of the members within our boundaries.

BIA Committees

Our Committees assist the Board in planning and administering initiatives and projects, while examining the specific areas of concern.

Committees propose initiatives and present expenditures for approval by the Board. The committees then bring the initiatives forward with the help of volunteer members.

Ultimately the responsibility for their activities rests with the BIA Board of Management which must therefore receive written reports on subcommittee activities at monthly Board meetings.

Committees work closely with the BIA Executive Director.
