The Board and Staff of the Hastings North Business Improvement Association recognizes that racism and violence against Black, Indigenous and other minority groups have been and continues to be part of Canadian society.
We recognize that this is a pervasive daily experience for many people in our country, our province, our city, and our neighbourhood.
The HNBIA board, staff, and members are committed to working with our community partners to strengthen actions to support BIPOC and those who identify as part of other minority groups.
We are committed to collaborating with our neighbourhood partners and the BIPOC community to create and ensure a safe and welcoming society for all.
We work to enhance and advocate for the commercial and light industrial areas within our boundaries.
We work towards a safe, economically thriving place to work, shop, live, and have fun through cooperative innovative programs and promotion.
The East Village is a culturally diverse business community which has a thriving small independent business sector and a productive vibrant manufacturing area supporting the City of Vancouver through service, productions, and employment.
We strive to be an attractive and inviting area to tourists as well as local and regional populations.
