ABOUT the Ossington BIA
Founded in 2014, the Ossington Business Improvement Area (BIA) is a non-profit, municipal organization representing over 190 local business owners and operators on Ossington Avenue, between Queen Street and Dundas Street. A forward-thinking and tightknit community of creatives who have united in their love of the Ossington Strip and their desire to maintain the vibrant and varied vibe of the neighbourhood, their repeat customer-filled restaurants, eclectic coffee shops, craft cocktail-producing bars, unique retail outlets and fitness facilities are what breathe life into Ossington Avenue, making it the place to be for the city’s cool kids. The BIA believes in the power of unique small businesses to create a strip as loved as Ossington is and aims to share its unmatched energy with the rest of Toronto. They want everyone to truly understand why “meet me on Ossington” has become the common opener for first dates, late nights, Sunday shopping and birthday dinners. www.ossingtonbia.ca
