Welcome Broadway businesses

We launched a digital awareness campaign in spring 2021 to support businesses during the construction of the Broadway Subway Project.

Goal

This campaign aims to increase awareness that Broadway businesses are open and encourage people to support them throughout the subway construction.

Campaign details

The Broadway business awareness campaign uses social media channels and digital advertising to encourage people to shop, eat, and play on Broadway.

A window decal was distributed in 2021 to each business along Broadway, between Arbutus and Kingsway, to be placed in storefronts as a visual reminder to support businesses along the corridor. 

Contact us if you have not received or need a new decal.
