Info Session: Digital Main Street Services & Grants

Your Business Improvement Area (BIA) team of volunteers is hard at work this year developing a plan to bring Corso Italia back to its full potential, increasing foot traffic and attracting new business to the area.

As part of this plan and with our recent enrollment as members of the Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas (TABIA), our merchants now qualify for some amazing FREE services and training as well as a $2500 grant to help you with your digital marketing initiatives including everything from social media help, new or updated websites, productivity software, graphic design or the services of a digital marketing expert to help you bring it all together.

We will be conducting an information session hosted at the offices of Dog & Pony Studios (Corso Italia BIA’s official marketing services firm) at 1151 St. Clair Ave West (just one block east of Dufferin on the south side) on the following dates:

MORNING SESSION: Tuesday October 22nd 7:30am – 8:30am 


EVENING SESSION: Wednesday October 23rd 6:30pm – 7:30pm

CLICK HERE to let us know which session you can attend. Space is limited.

At this session you will learn directly from the team at Digital Main Street about the available training services as well as how the Digital Services Squad can assist you at no charge to update your google listings, improve your SEO (search optimization) and ranking and improve your basic digital presence so your customers can find you more easily.

We will also run through the grant application process and the online small business video training program to give you all the tools your business needs to succeed in the digital space.

If you cannot attend either of the above sessions but are interested in the program, please reach out to our BIA Coordinator Ozman Omar for assistance at 416-654-3879 or email

IMPORTANT DEADLINE : the deadline to apply for the $2500 grant is December 31st, 2019! Contact us today or apply directly online at
