What We Do

The Yonge North York BIA is formed by a group of volunteer Board of Directors who own or operate businesses in the Willowdale area. Our main area of focus is on improving the local economy within the BIA area. The BIA Board of Directors act as a liaison between local businesses and government, to express the interests of businesses and have an impact on policies made with respect to the Willowdale area.
