Known around the city for our charming small village feel, come visit Bloor West Village — voted Toronto’s best neighbourhood by Toronto Life magazine!

Come find new treasures and trinkets in our bohemian boutiques Quipus Crafts and Lemon & Lavender. Enjoy candy-hued macarons at Bake Sale and Bread & Roses Bakery Cafe. And snap pictures of our historic architecture — including our 1920s, red-doored library.
Meet Canada’s first Business Improvement Area
When you visit Bloor West Village, you’ll immediately notice our vibrant main street. In the 1970s, we set up Toronto’s first ever BIA to help draw visitors to the neighbourhood and inspire residents to shop, eat, and play local. Over the last fifty years, we’ve helped build a dynamic, thriving local business community. As the first BIA in history, we’ve become the inspiration for over 85 similar organizations across Toronto.
From maintaining our beautiful sidewalks to hosting some of Toronto’s most popular events, we’re dedicated to supporting over 400 local businesses and residents.
