Strathcona Business Resources
Neighbourhood banners, seasonal hanging baskets, street and laneway cleaning, colourful murals, and an urban tree nursery all serve to enhance the Strathcona business district and attract customers to local businesses.
Strathcona businesses can have their recycling and organic waste collected by the Strathcona BIA through a community waste initiative. Hard containers (plastic, glass, metal), soft plastics, and organics are all part of this comprehensive, inexpensive, community-driven program.
Your business façade and streetscape will be kept clean and safe with a team dedicated to keeping your buildings and streets looking professional.
SBIA's regular communications with the city will keep your business consistently informed about municipal decisions that may affect your business. The concerns and needs of all SBIA business members are also conveyed to the City in this way.
Community Watch team members provide an added sense of security for your business.
Your entire neighbourhood will be kept clean of litter and debris through our street cleaning teams in partnership with Coast Mental Health and United We Can.
Businesses in Strathcona can take advantage of the Resource Exchange by donating unused materials or collecting free materials they can use as inputs. Operated by the Strathcona Business Improvement Association, the Resource Exchange helps businesses keep valuable resources out of the landfill, and provides resources to new businesses, teachers, artists, and community groups.
With a growing and highly supportive business network, you will be exposed to a variety of events and workshops where you can easily make new business contacts and learn new skills.
