Membership News

Thanks to all that came out to our latest BIA Social hosted by Tequila Bookworm! Our next Social is scheduled MON JUN 56:30-8:00pm. Tequila Bookworm - 512 Queen St W, will again host us in their upstairs room. Hope to see you there!
Be part of history: Name the Lane! There are a couple of laneways in the area, off Graffiti Alley / Rush Lane, that don't have a name. As we populate these spaces more and more and nourish the unique culture that they invite, we are working with local residents to animate dead spaces in our neighbourhood. Check out namethelane.ca and get imaginative. 
Construction sucks but… we have to the build the Toronto today that we want to live in tomorrow. Stay tuned for updates on streetcar reroutes (yup, we have buses again this summer), construction updates (Queen and McCaul streetcar tracks, sidewalk repaving Bathurst to Spadina, etc.), and remember the good news: new trees and parkettes.
