New Businesses

Message from the Chair – Fall 2020

September 9, 2020

Welcome to Fall in Bolton! A great destination to enjoy glorious Fall colours which will be in full display in the next few weeks. These days in the shadow of the pandemic we look for places to visit close to home and Bolton is in easy reach from Toronto.

Thank you to the Town of Caledon for the new banners in our downtown. See the pictures on this website. These promote the theme “Shop Local”, part of the Town’s initiative to boost local businesses.

Thank you also to the Provincial Government for bringing us the Digital Main Street program set up to assist small businesses to make effective use of websites and social media. The BIA program which provided free expert help ended on August 31st , however individual grants of $2,500 are still available while the money lasts.

As the Province allows businesses to reopen we look forward to seeing our downtown come back to life.

Please support local shops, restaurants and services whenever you can, as they recover from forced closings. Also look forward to welcoming a brand new restaurant on Queen Street North in time for Christmas.

Congratulations and very best wishes to all the children this September as they go back to school amid strange and new conditions.

Lastly, if the BIA can help in promoting your downtown business or event, or for any questions about downtown Bolton please contact Trudy at

From all of us on the Board, stay safe and healthy.

Jean Carberry, Chair Downtown Bolton BIA
