The Toronto Financial District BIA covers Toronto's central commercial district, home to Union Station, the PATH subway system, Canada's five primary banks, and many of the city's most well-known companies. The BIA is supported by a specific charge on commercial real estate located inside the Financial District. All commercial properties and enterprises in the Financial District are members.
What BIA Stands For?
A Business Improvement Area (BIA) is a group of properties and businesses in a particular district that collaborate with the city to create a lively, competitive, and accessible environment. Toronto now has the most BIAs of any city in the world, with over 80.
Faces of the District
The city's bustling commercial center houses the city's banks and enterprises and notable lunch and happy hour locations, all inside steel and glass buildings. While the region offers mainly to the 9 to 5 crowd, shoppers can visit the PATH, the world's largest underground shopping mall, which connects dozens of skyscrapers, six hotels, five subway stations, and many significant stadiums with limitless retail stores via pedestrian tunnels.
The PATH network in Toronto is the city's underground city, a 28-kilometer (17-mile) corridor with shops, services, and entertainment. This underground tube system connects some of Toronto's most important office buildings and attractions through underground passages. PATH connects many downtown companies, malls, stores, movie theaters, and subways. Because PATH is an underground network, you can travel throughout downtown Toronto regardless of the weather.
