Business Improvement Areas (BIAs)

A Business Improvement Area (BIA) is a geographic area in a municipality, set up to provide certain business promotion and improvement functions within that area.

A BIA allows local business people and property owners to join together to organize, finance, and carry out physical improvements, and promote economic development in their district; with the support of the municipality.  BIAs and their staff have knowledge about the local market that can help make your business a success.  They may even be able to offer financial incentives to assist your project.  Contact them directly to find out more:

Argyle BIA

Downtown London BIA

Old East Village BIA


There are also several business associations in the City of London to assist when considering setting up or moving an existing business:

Hamilton Road Business Association

Hyde Park Business Association

Old South Business Association


Both the BIAs and the Business Associations are separate entities from the City of London.  If you are part of a business association and wish to have it listed here, please contact
