Volunteering is an excellent way to give back to your community. It puts you in the centre of things and allows you the opportunity to make a difference, while meeting great people of different backgrounds, all gathered with the same goal of making downtown Richmond Hill a more vibrant place to be.
The Village of Richmond Hill BIA is always looking for volunteers. If you have ideas to improve or beautify our wonderful community, or would like to donate your time, skills or talents, please do not hesitate to contact us.

You can select where you’d like to help out:
- The Village of Richmond Hill BIA’s hospitality booth (information and merchandise);
- Vendor check-in, performer check-in, coordinator or liaison;
- Setup or teardown of tents, stands, etc.;
- Visitor check-in and information;
It is important to note that here, at the Village of Richmond Hill BIA, we value your time and opinions and your contribution will always be recognized with a BIA Certificate of Appreciation.
We are open to and welcome volunteers of all ages and backgrounds. There are no restrictions or pre-qualifications.
Without the help of our community volunteers, it would be impossible to accomplish so many of the important mandates and missions we strive to achieve, such as community betterment and beautification and promotion of all the wonderful businesses of downtown Richmond Hill.
