Welcome to the BIA
Founded in 1977, the Downtown Wallaceburg Business Improvement Area (BIA) is a non-profit, self-help organization funded by property owners within our designated area.
We work with many community partners including the Wallaceburg & District Museum, WDSS, Wallaceburg Farmers’ Market Committee and the Municipality in our effort to preserve and develop the heart of Wallaceburg. Our Board of Directors and member businesses work together to set and achieve goals by focusing on tourism, business retention and expansion. Promotions, festivals, markets and special events are held throughout the year in an effort to increase traffic and awareness, while enhancing the profile of our downtown and strengthen investor confidence.
Each summer, area residents and visitors are treated to a vibrant display of colourful foliage provided by the many beautiful gardens, planters and hanging baskets on display in our downtown, all funded by the Downtown Wallaceburg BIA. The summer gardens and planters also provide the perfect backdrop for our bi-weekly Wallaceburg Farmers’ Market and one of our newest initiatives, Whimsies Paddle Rentals.
