Have your say on Leslieville's future


Leslieville Business Improvement Area (BIA) is asking for the public’s help in guiding the future of retail, dining and entertainment in the neighbourhood as it supports a community of 220 small businesses along Queen Street East from Booth Ave (Jimmie Simpson Park) to Vancouver Ave (just east of Greenwood).

The BIA has engaged an external consulting team, ThinkFresh Group and Futures Present, who are seeking to understand perceptions about Leslieville, the BIA and the many stories that are here in Leslieville. They will be using this to help create a narrative and strategic direction for the BIA.

As part of this process, local Leslieville residents are being solicited for feedback on what they tend to do in the neighbourhood. It will shape the community and you’ll also be entered into a draw for 50 Leslieville Dollars. Not bad for about 15 minutes of work.

Take the Leslieville resident survey. The survey closes at midnight on Sept. 13.
