Executive Director’s message

The next few months will be a very exciting and busy time in Emery Village. We are looking forward to connecting with many new and longtime business owners as we gear up for some important business information meetings coming in March as well as community events, so stay tuned for more information to follow in the next months.

The City of Toronto will start accepting applications for the Commercial Façade Improvement Program in late February. We encourage business owners to apply for this program, which provides funding to commercial and private property owners to renovate or redesign their building facades. It is a great opportunity to update your business and the Emery Village BIA is available to help you with any questions and to submit a strong application.

It is crucial to apply early to ensure you have the best chance. The program is first come first serve. If you would like more information or guidance with the application, please email Al Ruggero at: al@emeryvillagebia.ca

Looking ahead, the Emery Village BIA will host a community-wide job fair this spring.

In the next few weeks, we will send out detailed information packages to all our Emery Businesses so please look out for the information packages which will be sent to you by Canada Post.

This is an excellent opportunity for both large and small businesses to connect with skilled and talented job seekers in the area. If your business is or will be hiring for any positions, we encourage you to participate. To register for the event please call our office at: 416-744-7242 or email us at: info@emeryvillagebia.ca and we will get you set up.

This is a great time to connect with the community and make the most of your business in Emery. Please visit our website at: emeryvillagebia.ca for the most up to date information.
