The Glebe Business Improvement Area (BIA) is a non-profit organization affiliated with the City of Ottawa, dedicated to the success and safety of Glebe businesses through initiatives such as on-street beautification, marketing campaigns, community events, and public realm advocacy. The Glebe BIA was formed in 2008 and currently has almost 400 members. The BIA reports to a Board of Directors who are voted upon at the Annual General Meeting and serve four-year terms. The BIA budget is funded by a commercial taxation levy paid by the property owners within the Glebe BIA borders.
