Welcome to Downtown Tillsonburg

Downtown_Tillsonburg_Sidewalk_Days_2010_009_copyThe Town of Tillsonburg is a prosperous community of 16,000 located within Oxford County in Southwestern Ontario. Although historically known as the heart of the tobacco belt, we are now a thriving town in the centre of Ontario’s trade corridor that is home to a number of national and international companies. Our location between Toronto and Detroit is one of our many competitive advantages and enables companies located here to access Canada and the world. Downtown Tillsonburg is a delightful mix of heritage buildings and storefronts as well as a modern mall and big box centre. Tillsonburg serves a catchment area of approximately 118 thousand people within a 20 minute drive. Our motto “A place to build your future” rings true for people, business and investment.

The Tillsonburg Business Improvement Association (BIA) is an organization defined by their geographic location in the downtown of Tillsonburg (Business Improvement Area - see map). The organization is non-profit and operates under the authority under the Municipal Act (see E-laws). The BIA is managed by the BIA Board, which is comprised of members in the Business Improvement Area. The BIA is responsible for the promotion and beautification of Downtown Tillsonburg. The goal of the Board and the Business Improvement Area is to make downtown Tillsonburg your first choice for shopping and services needs.
