In 1985, the Little Italy BIA was founded in the heart of College Street by a dedicated group of commercial and industrial property owners and tenants empowered by the municipality of Toronto.
Over the years, this neighbourhood has developed, evolved, changed and matured. It had emerged as incredibly dynamic and distinctive area. It is renowned for its well known cafes, authentic restaurants, eclectic nightlife, European shops and distinctive services.
Today, it continues to thrive under the direction of an engaged and empowered Board of Directors. A board that is vested in the area and volunteers their time and energy to making Little Italy a better place. Acting as a unified voice that represents the members on critical issues that affect the neighbourhood, the board remains committed to creating safe and vibrant place, while promoting the unique businesses and rich culture it is so well known for.
BIA Boundaries: College Street from Bathurst Street to Shaw Street.
