Emery Village BIA Executive Director's Message - Sept 2021

As the colder weather is around the corner and restrictions are lifting, now is a great time to get out and show love for your community in these hard times. From September 20 to December 14, a giant heart will appear at the northeast corner of Weston Road and Sheppard Avenue.

We encourage you to take a photo with the heart, post it on Instagram and tag @emeryvillagebia, #showloveTO and #SLTO.

We will choose winners at random through these tags and winners will receive prizes in gift cards.

The Province of Ontario has changed their proof of vaccination requirements.

As of September 22, 2021, Ontarians will need to be fully vaccinated (two doses plus 14 days) and provide their proof of vaccination along with photo ID to access certain public settings and facilities.

To help with this process, the Emery Village BIA is working with Toronto Public Health to organize on-site mobile vaccination clinics for interested businesses in the area.

The On-Site Mobile Clinic can come directly to your business and vaccinate any staff (first or second dose). Businesses need to have a small space with two chairs for the vaccination, and a separate chair to monitor the vaccinated person for 15 minutes after each dose. To learn more about this or sign up, view the flyer in the newspaper or visit our website:


We hope you have a great start to the fall season and are looking forward to our community slowly getting back to normal in the future.
