About Us

It’s Your Downtown – The Heart of Our City In 1973, at the request of the local business community, City Council passed a special by-law establishing a Business Improvement Area (BIA) to help maintain and enhance the city’s downtown core. The Downtown Barrie BIA (referred to as Downtown Barrie) encompasses from High Street to Poyntz and Collier/Ross Streets to Simcoe. Right now, there are over 600 property owners and business operators within Downtown Barrie. All businesses assessed for business taxes within the Downtown Barrie boundaries are automatically included in the membership and contribute a ‘levy’ to the BIA’s operating budget. Mission Statement: Establish Downtown Barrie as the economically leading mid-size commercial, retail and entertainment community within the city, region, province and country while working within a framework of high quality, guiding values.

COVID-19 Advisory

In response to evolving data around the Delta variant and based on the recent experiences of other jurisdictions, the government, in consultation with Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, is pausing the exit from the Roadmap to Reopen.

The Chief Medical Officer of Health and other health experts will continue to monitor the data to determine when it is safe to exit the Roadmap and lift the majority of public health and workplace safety measures currently in place.

Thank you for the work you have already done to protect our community by following public health protocols throughout these challenging times.

Stay strong, choose local, and please consider participating in our Rapid Screening Program to help reduce community spread.
