Participate in the SafeTObia Initiative 


SafeTObia is a city-wide pilot project adopted by Toronto City Council and a partnership between the Downtown Yonge Business Improvement Area and SafeTO. The goal of the pilot is to address the growing challenges of community safety and wellbeing in Toronto BIAs and learn about how these issues are affecting their business. Information sessions scheduled for August 10, 24 and 29 are now open to all BIAs, BIA members and stakeholders. Register here.

The Downtown Yonge Business Improvement Area (DYBIA) and SafeTO have partnered on a year long pilot project to address the growing challenges of community safety and well-being in BIAs.

  • The goals of SafeTObia
  • How BIAs can participate
