About Kerr Village BIA
In addition to the marketing opportunities we create, the Business Improvement Area also champions the frontline issues affecting our neighbourhood: the neglect of public and private spaces, graffiti, petty crime and traffic/parking issues.
The Kerr Village BIA:
- Acts as a liaison between the business community and the local government.
- Works closely with commercial property owners to help fill unoccupied space and to ensure an optimum business mix is achieved.

- Provides steetscaping improvements: lighting, signage, planters, banners and sidewalk treatments, as well as holiday decorations.

Our goal is to make Kerr Village cleaner, safer and more hospitable to landlords, business owners, employees, residents...and visitors. We invite you to stop by for a visit!
