The Dundas West BIA is situated along Dundas Street West in the former Village of Brockton. It covers the area from the CNR tracks just west of Lansdowne Avenue to Rusholme Road to the east and consists primarily of small businesses. The BIA, formed in 2006, was driven by a very dedicated and active steering committee consisting of retailers, artists, designers and a landscape architect. This group quickly initiated area improvements, the most notable being a revitalization of the Dundas-St. Clarens parkette. Plans are underway for streetscape improvements to develop the area into a more competitive and vital business area in a way that acknowledges the historic Village of Brockton and the more recent contribution of the Portuguese community.
