About Little Portugal Toronto BIA

A unique blend of historic and contemporary, Little Portugal Toronto BIA is a small independent business collective situated on Dundas Street West, just west of Lansdowne Avenue to Shaw Street. The combination of public murals, boutique stores, bars, restaurants, music venues, professional services, galleries and convenience stores make for a quirky and culturally distinct community spirit. Swing by and experience a sense of belonging, in the heart of Little Portugal. 

Building on previous projects that have successfully supported area beautification, safety and economic development, Dundas West and Little Portugal BIAs have joined to create one larger Business Improvement Area that spans from Shaw Street to the CN tracks just west of Lansdowne Avenue.
