This July, the Government of Canada announced a $1 million investment for the revitalization of Little Jamaica through its FedDev Ontario program. This investment will be provided to the BBPA by the City of Toronto and will be used to deliver programs and initiatives to support all Black-owned and operated businesses within the Little Jamaica boundaries, to help in these challenging times.
We are working alongside the Eglinton Hill, Fairbank Village and York-Eglinton Business Improvement Areas and other local organizations to boost their efforts.
This fall, we are excited to begin programs to help your business and address immediate needs. They include:
Shop Talk Thursdays – Hosted by a different business each week on the following topics: technology, enhancing the customer experience, finance and money management for a small business and décor.
Web and E-commerce Presence – We will be launch a Little Jamaica App and develop digital media and online marketing for local businesses.
Business Programs – We will offer services to help with tax filings, business plan development, financial reviews, payroll, business registration and marketing strategies.
“In collaboration with our community partners, the BBPA is committed to maintaining ongoing support for the Little Jamaica community and its businesses with a storefront office at 1621 Eglinton West in order to be more accessible to businesses and patrons,” says Vice-President of the BBPA Ross Cadastre.
