Heart of Orleans BIA
- Non Profit/Charity
- Business Improvement Area
The Heart of Orléans Business Improvement Area (BIA) is a not-for-profit Board of Management, started by our business community in 2008. BIAs are a way for business districts to pool resources to promote and improve the area, and speak with one common voice. We do this through advocacy and collaboration for our members, promoting the area as a district and special events, recruiting and retaining our businesses, and improving the streetscape.
The BIA takes a leadership role in attracting the kind of businesses that makes the Heart of Orléans distinct. The BIA represents the heart of the community of Orléans as the place of choice for our community to shop for specialty goods, professional services, unique dining and entertainment, and at shops that are often local and family-run businesses.
We are committed to nurturing an engaged and enthusiastic membership that reflects and values our vibrant community.
The BIA helps to create a beautiful, trendy destination. We strive to reflect the unique heritage of the area as the original “main street” of Orleans, but also work to develop a modern St-Joseph district as a place that is a vibrant, walkable and mixed use space.
Our Core Values:
Leadership: We strive to be a strong community leader, influencing decisions and inspiring positive change.
Generating wealth: Our activities support long term economic development in our district.
Advocacy: We are committed to advocating for and promoting our district, and empowering our members.
Partnership: Helping our members connect and collaborate and working with key players in Orléans
