Safetobia

 The Downtown Yonge Business Improvement Area (DYBIA) and SafeTO have partnered on a year long pilot project to address the growing challenges of community safety and well-being in BIAs across Toronto

Goal of safetobia

During and post pandemic, a significant increase in issues related to safety and well-being was identified among the business community through initial SafeTO consultations.

To address that change, SafeTObia was created to better provide BIAs with resources, processes and the capacity to better address their unique CS&WB issues in the short and medium term.

To develop more localized support the project is meant to engage with BIAs and key stakeholder across city departments to better understand the the issues to then explore solutions with participating BIAs.
