Only members of the BIA, and legal representatives of BIA members (proof required), are eligible to vote at the Annual General Meeting. The City of Toronto Municipal Code, Chapter 19, states that Business Improvement Area Members are defined as “all persons who own rateable property in a business property class and all persons who are non-residential tenants of rateable property in a business property class in a business improvement area.” A “person” is defined by Chapter 19 to include “a corporation and the heirs, executors, administrators or other legal representatives of a person to whom the context can apply according to the law.” No person in attendance shall have more than one vote.
Please note: As per the amended City of Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 19, adopted by City Council at its meeting on July 4-7, 2017, designates are no longer eligible to vote on behalf of BIA members at annual general meetings. Therefore, a designate form has not been included in your AGM notice package.
