Many businesses in the Kanata Central Area (including Centrum, Signature Centre, Canadian Tire area and Kanata Commons) are anxious to work together to improve business in their area and make it a better place for residents. They are working towards setting up a Business Improvement Area to do so. A BIA would help with marketing, branding, beautification, reduction of vacancies, improved traffic flow, events and more. If you are a business in the area and are interested in getting involved please contact my office as soon as possible. We are holding a public consultation for all businesses within the boundary, shown on the map below, on September 20, 2016 at the Beaverbrook Library at 8 am. For more information call 613-580-2474.
