COVID-19 Virtual Town Hall

Message from the Chair – Winter 2020

As we look forward to the Holiday Season in this unique time and in face of even more lockdowns, it is more important than ever that we do what we can to support our local businesses.

Many small businesses make up to half of their annual revenue from this season. See our Business Directory for a local business that may be able to serve you despite restrictions. Besides making purchases there are ways to help, such as:

  • Leave a GOOGLE review about a local store or service that you have enjoyed. It costs nothing and promotes the business.
  • Buy Gift Cards from spas, restaurants etc. Can be used later and helps tide over to better times.
  • Follow the store or service and comment on social media.
  • Reach out to encourage a business you know and even volunteer help, if you can.

Soon we will be decorating downtown with holiday banners and the Christmas Tree at the gazebo. If you will have a holiday display at your business, let us know and we will feature it on the website.

Lastly, if the BIA can help in promoting your downtown business or event, or for any questions about downtown Bolton please contact Trudy at admin@downtownbolton.ca

From all of us on the Board, the very best of the Season and stay safe and healthy

Message from the Chair – Fall 2020

Welcome to Fall in Bolton! A great destination to enjoy glorious Fall colours which will be in full display in the next few weeks. These days in the shadow of the pandemic we look for places to visit close to home and Bolton is in easy reach from Toronto.

Thank you to the Town of Caledon for the new banners in our downtown. See the pictures on this website. These promote the theme “Shop Local”, part of the Town’s initiative to boost local businesses.

Thank you also to the Provincial Government for bringing us the Digital Main Street program set up to assist small businesses to make effective use of websites and social media. The BIA program which provided free expert help ended on August 31st , however individual grants of $2,500 are still available while the money lasts.

As the Province allows businesses to reopen we look forward to seeing our downtown come back to life.

Please support local shops, restaurants and services whenever you can, as they recover from forced closings. Also look forward to welcoming a brand new restaurant on Queen Street North in time for Christmas.

Congratulations and very best wishes to all the children this September as they go back to school amid strange and new conditions.

Lastly, if the BIA can help in promoting your downtown business or event, or for any questions about downtown Bolton please contact Trudy at admin@downtownbolton.ca

From all of us on the Board, stay safe and healthy.
