About Tecumseh BIA

The Tecumseh BIA is a progressive association of business and property owners who work in partnership with the Town to foster Tecumseh’s retail and service sectors as a successful and increasingly competitive business area. We interpret this mandate as a process by which our business community generates a unified voice in finding local solutions to common economic trends.

As a catalyst for community economic growth, the Tecumseh BIA is a significant contributor to the health and welfare of the local economy, civic improvements, and quality of life. Throughout the year, the Tecumseh BIA progressively introduces innovative business retention and expansion initiatives, community events and festivals, capital improvements and strategic promotions.

The Tecumseh BIA coordinates a wide array of special events that is guaranteed to entertain and even amaze you, such as The Gallery Without Walls Banner Program that celebrate the wealth of creative talent in our area. Artists from all ages submit their original art work/photographs and the top entries are selected and digitally copied on vinyl 5′ banners. Enjoy a fun day of touring by car, bicycle or even on foot to view all of the vibrant and colourful unique banners that are an addition to our townscape.
