As the Chair of the Village of Richmond Hill Business Improvement Area (BIA),
I would like to welcome you to our small village with a big heart.
Back in 1851, our village was home to eight storekeepers, three doctors, a distiller, three wagon makers,
six carpenters, three black smiths and five innkeepers. Today our quaint historical district boasts a unique
mixture of over 300 businesses in 97 buildings, including eateries, retail stores, a theatre for the performing
arts, a full range of professional offices, and much more. As a family of businesses, we are working tirelessly
together to achieve the goal of improving our area to make it an attractive area to shop, work, play, AND do
business. In order to realize our aspirations, we are continuously embarking on new and innovative strategies
to help our business community flourish, and to attract new, quality businesses to move to our downtown core.
Come and experience for yourself why we are called the “small village with a BIG heart”
