A Business Improvement Zone (BIZ) is an association of business people who join together to promote their mutual interests, undertake improvements and cooperatively market their businesses.
The Board of Directors consists of representatives that have been elected by the businesses in the BIZ zone at the AGM. Programs and budgets are prepared and approved first by the area business representatives at the AGM and then by City Council.
The Transcona BIZ has a membership of 170 businesses and is constantly striving to increase economic development in the BIZ zone and provide services and programming for the entire community of Transcona and surrounding areas.
