The Downtown Hamilton Business Improvement Area (BIA) represents a group of around 170 property owners and 450 businesses within the defined geographic area surrounding Gore Park. The BIA collectively develops, promotes, and protects the commercial viability of the area while also contributing to the vibrancy of downtown through events, beautification efforts, public art initiatives, and more. The BIA is also a source of information for business members and advocates on their behalf.  

Downtown Hamilton is the heart of the city & where you will find large-scale events alongside intimate performances, award-winning restaurants, unique retail destinations, personal service experts, and a large concentration of growing and established professionals to help with the services you need. It is a place where everyone is welcome to gather in shared experiences and one that brings together visitors, residents, and all those who work downtown.
