Bloor-Yorkville is Toronto’s premiere shopping, dining and tourist district, and has been compared to New York’s Fifth Avenue and Chicago’s North Michigan Avenue. The area is home to high-fashion retailers like Chanel, Tiffany, Holt Renfrew and Gucci, not to mention the countless uniquely Canadian boutiques which shoppers find in-between these fashion giants.
The Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood is bordered by Scollard Street to the north, St. Mary Street to the south, Avenue Road to the west and Church Street to the east.
The Bloor-Yorkville BIA initiates and funds many neighbourhood improvements, including the newly improved Bloor Street trees, gardens and granite sidewalks.
