The Barrhaven Business Improvement Area was created by the City of Ottawa in 2006 to help all local businesses succeed by establishing Barrhaven as Ottawa’s premier shopping, business and entertainment destination.
Membership in the BBIA is automatic. ALL commercial taxpaying businesses, property owners and professional service providers in the Barrhaven area belong to the BBIA. Home-based businesses are also eligible to join.
Basically, the BBIA works to create optimum conditions for all Barrhaven businesses to flourish. That means promoting Barrhaven as a prime shopping area, lobbying for ‘smart growth’ in the community and providing local businesses with tools for success.
