What Is The BIA?

A Business Improvement Area (BIA) is an association of commercial property owners and tenants within a defined area who work in partnership with the City to create thriving, competitive, and safe business areas that attract shoppers, diners, tourists, and new businesses.

We are supported by a diverse and dedicated team of volunteers / sponsors that live and work within the Oshawa Downtown BIA boundaries. With passion and commitment, we pursue the following initiatives and objectives:
