About the BIA:

The Weston Village BIA, established in 1979, is one of the oldest BIA's in Toronto. Situated in the north-west end of Toronto minutes from both the 401 & 400 highways, it is next to the Humber River with its extensive bike trail and walking paths. The business area reflects the cultural diversity of the surrounding community and consists of an eclectic mix of over 200 stores, services and professional offices.

The goals of the Weston Village BIA include the revitalization and preservation of the Village through regular maintenance, facade improvement, streetscape, public art programs, special events and promotions, and municipal partnership.

Thank you to our supporters! I HeART Main Street is presented in partnership with RBC Royal Bank and generously supported by Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council, and funding provided by the Government of Ontario.
