Member Programs

The BIA offers several programs for its membership:

BIA Bucks: The downtown currency

  • A BIA Buck is our standard dollar used on a regular basis by the consumers in our community. BIA Bucks are an economic booster to our BIA members and enable shoppers to contribute to BIA retailers. The BIA Buck is available to the public and can be purchased from the BIA office. There is no expiry on the BIA bucks. BIA Bucks can be used at most Downtown Carleton Place businesses. Any issues using them please contact the Downtown Carleton Place BIA Office.
