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.
