About the Downtown
Woodstock 
BIA

A Business Improvement Association (BIA) is a geographic district within a Municipality. The volunteer board of management is composed of property owners & merchants who contribute directly to the BIA and one Municipal council representative. The Downtown Woodstock BIA is managed by the Downtown Development Officer and the Operations Manager. 

 

The Downtown Woodstock BIA allows local business and property owners to join forces and, with the support of the Provincial by-law, organize, finance, and implement its purpose and objectives of overseeing the beautification, promotions, and events in the downtown core.

 

A Business Improvement Area (BIA) is a “Made-in-Ontario” innovation that allows local business people, and commercial property owners and tenants to join together and, with the support of the municipality, to organize, finance, and carry out physical improvements and promote economic development in their district. Traditionally, a BIA is a body established by a municipality using the specific business improvement area provisions in the Municipal Act, 2001.
