We are pleased to welcome our new Downtown Acton BIA manager, Tyler King, who will begin on July 9th. We are sure that Tyler will be a great addition to our team, and we look forward to seeing him in action!
Tyler has worked at two other BIA’s over the past ten years with increasing responsibility and
authority in each of his roles. He brings a wealth of knowledge about developing local tourism
and increasing community investment to support their downtown business districts. In fact, if
you have ever attended the Collingwood Elvis Festival, you may have met him already.
Tyler’s Bachelor’s degree is from the University of Guelph where he majored in psychology and
neuroscience. He had grown up in Collingwood, Ontario with three generations of family before
him running successful businesses next to the Town Hall. He comes from a family who has
been actively involved in helping shape their local BIA and their communities at large.
In his spare time, Tyler loves cooking and trying to find new hole-in-the-wall locations for great
food, drink and entertainment. He is a big advocate for entrepreneurship and fitness is also a
fan of traveling the world, looking for interesting experiences.
Tyler will join the Acton Downtown team helping to advise and execute the services and
programs laid out by your BIA’s Board of Directors. He will work with the local BIA
membership, the offices of the Town of Halton Hills, provincial front-line agencies and local
community groups to advocate Acton Downtown’s short- and long-term development
