Exploring Business Improvement Districts

In April 2016, four Yellowknife business owners attended the Pacific Northwest Regional Conference with support from the City of Yellowknife.

Organized by the Business Improvement Areas of BC (BIABC) and the International Downtown Association (IDA), the focus of the conference was looking at local business and neighbourhoods in our cities in new, innovative and unique ways.

What is a Business Improvement District?

  • A defined neighbourhood boundary where businesses pay an additional tax to provide services or improvements for businesses within the district's boundaries.
  • Funds are collected by the City on behalf of businesses which are represented by elected board members.
  • BID services/improvements commonly include marketing, coordinating festivals and events, street patrols, beautification initiatives, capital improvements, lobbying/advocacy, and partnerships.
