Vancouver’s eclectic heart: a welcoming, diverse community rooted in social innovation, compassion, and cultural wisdom.
Through a commitment to social innovation and impact, we are stewards of the public realm and local economy which serves more than 650 businesses and property owners in a central portion of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside (DTES) stretching from Richards St. to Gore Ave. along Hastings St. and portions of Pender, Cordova, Main and Powell St.
HxBIA is an organization that takes a leadership role in managing change and shaping a more resilient, inclusive and sustainable local economy here in the Downtown Eastside.
Through collaboration with its business members, grassroots, government, private sector and non-profit partners we bridge the needs of local businesses with the capacity of community focused organizations to foster a vibrant, healthy and diverse area for all – whether you’re here every day or just for the afternoon.
