What is a BIZ?
Imagine a place where businesses thrive. A place where business owners can create their own community of events and attractions. A place where people want to visit, shop, and spend time. A Business Improvement Zone (BIZ) can make such things a reality.
A Business Improvement Zone is an association of business people who join together to promote their mutual interests. The concept of joining together provides the local business district with a voice on how to attract clients and customers to their place of business, to undertake improvements and cooperatively market their businesses.

Among the BIZ’s goals is to create a place where neighbourhoods thrive. Thriving communities need their residents to feel that they belong, share a sense of purpose, show community pride and concern and respect for their neighbors. Our family-friendly “always free” community events are one way we can help strengthen and build a stronger community, with a prosperous business district.
Stay up to date with our free quarterly publication that gets delivered to over 17,000 local homes and businesses. Read up on BIZ member stories, our latest programs, community events and projects.
There are many benefits to being a business in the Zone. The Transcona BIZ offers an extended suite of business marketing and place-making programs. From public art & murals, to storefront improvement grants, we work with our members to ensure we help create an exceptional experience for their customers and all community members.
