At the BIZ, we don’t just work to keep spaces clean. Our members rank greenery and flowers, lighting, public art, and more as important pieces of downtown improvement. We want to transform Winnipeg’s urban experience by supporting placemaking projects that create wonderful, welcoming spaces for us all to enjoy downtown.

Placemaking Initiatives

The Placemaking Initiatives are a series of bold downtown placemaking projects for 2017-2019, that has been a result of a Placemaking Summit and public consultation process. Together with partners, we are creating more great places that help people connect to one another and supply basic human amenities.

Storefront Improvement

Helping our members do better business and add to the character of our neighbourhoods by improving their facades and window displays.

Public Art

Helping create inspiring spaces with art for all.


Beautifying our downtown streets with banners, flowers, lights and more.
