Safe & Inclusive Neighbourhood Survey

Downtown Yonge BIA is committed to better understanding the community's concerns around safety and inclusion, which is why we created the annual Safe & Inclusive Neighbourhood survey launched in 2018. 


We would greatly appreciate your feedback. It only take about 5 minutes to complete, and is anonymous, with an opportunity to win some great prizes! 


Survey closes September 27, 2019

Reporting Crime

Wondering what you can do to help create a safer, more inclusive Downtown Yonge? Reporting all crimes that happen in the area is an easy first step! To make it simple for our members, we created this handy infographic that allows for a better understanding of what crimes are to be reported through the emergency line, which are non-emergency calls, and which can be reported through other means. We encourage all our members to report, report, report!

Downtown Toronto Drop-In Resource Booklet

To better equip our members and stakeholders to deal with the chronic social issues in the neighbourhood, the Downtown yonge BIA created the Downtown Toronto Drop-In Resource booklet in partnership with Ryerson University that lists all the drop-in centres within a 10-15 minute walk of Yonge St and Dundas St. This booklet is updated twice a year; Once for the Summer/Fall seasons and once for the Winter/Spring seasons.
