greenTbiz was founded in 2006 to assist BIAs and their members in identifying energy conservation programs and related green opportunities. It educates BIA members about how to access incentive programs or service providers that can help businesses “go green” and save money in the process. Past projects have included the Doors Closed Campaign and LEDiscovery event.
TABIA is a non-profit organization representing the City of Toronto’s 71 BIAs who in turn, represent more than 27,000 business and property owners. TABIA is well recognized by government organizations on all levels as it is understood that BIAs are the primary lifeline of the communities in which they reside. Since the inception of BIAs, the City of Toronto has been supportive and has championed the BIA movement. As a result of this support, a BIA office has been established at City Hall in order to administer, assist and support the efforts of the City’s BIAs.
