The Bloor-Yorkville BIA was created specifically to develop and implement streetscape beautification and promotional programs with a view to increasing business revenues and tourism in the area. These programs are financed through a levy, which is applied to all businesses located within the geographical boundaries of the BIA. The administration of these programs and projects are the responsibility of the Board of Management.

The Mandate of the Bloor-Yorkville BIA is to improve, beautify and maintain municipally owned lands, buildings, and structures in the area beyond such improvement beautification and maintenance as is provided at the expense of the Corporation of the City of Toronto at large; and to promote the Bloor-Yorkville Business Improvement Area as a business and shopping area.
