Bringing Back the Historic Queen Street East BIA

I’m excited to announce that I am working to revitalize the Historic Queen Street East Business Improvement Area (BIA)

Queen Street East, between Victoria Street and River Street, is a prime location to live work and relax with friends and enjoy a coffee or a micro brew. It’s a testament to our city’s rich past, with beautiful architecture dating back to the 19th century. The street is packed with independent bookstores, small butchers and a plethora of good and affordable foods from across the globe. This historic area is experiencing a resurgence of new restaurants and retail that would be well served by a BIA to advocate for their interests. 

If you know a business owner on this stretch of Queen Street East  or want to support this revitalization, check out our website! (​​ Our website will serve as a central point for information and updates on the progress of the revitalization of the Historic Queen Street East BIA.

Call for Volunteers

Are you a resident who wants to see more vibrancy and seasonal beautification on Queen Street East between Victoria Street and River Street? We’re looking for strong neighbourhood champions to engage with local businesses to build support for a revitalized BIA.

Last month, I spent an afternoon in the Winchester Park neighborhood, a small area between Cabbagetown and St. James Town. This community, like its neighbours, is a mix of heritage homes, Toronto Community Housing units, and social service providers. My dedicated staff and two members of the Winchester Park Residents’ Association (WPRA) joined me.
