Regarding Local Business in the Dupont/Bloor West Communities

If you have a small local business, a home business or want to start a new business, the city of Toronto has information that may help.

See these websites:


Along with the decline of the neighbourhood’s industrial base we will also see more lost commercial space and related jobs with the redevelopment of the Galleria Mall. We already have high unemployment in the area and need new local businesses to develop to help keep our communities vital.

We do not want our neighbourhood to become a bedroom community with everyone driving out of the area to go to work with few services and little commercial local life.

The re-development of the Galleria site will offer some level of commercial spaces, perhaps 1/4 – 1/3 of what is there now. It would be helpful if local residents, business and perhaps potential new businesses started to think about possibilities for the site and/or ways to influence the kind of commercial activity needed at the redevelopment. The redevelopment planners have offered a community space of 2000 square feet for local projects. One idea is a local business incubator that might help develop and launch new small local businesses.

More about the Galleria redevelopment:

 The City of Toronto’s Social Indicators and Priority Areas study prepared in connection with the new City of Toronto Plan focuses on indicators of risk, or social vulnerability. The study identified this portion of the City as being in the second highest quartile of socio-economic vulnerability. Having regard to indicators such as low income, unemployment, social assistance, tenant households, lone-parent families, education less than grade 9 and tenant households spending 50% or more income on shelter costs
