Bayview Village includes the area bounded by Bayview Ave., Sheppard Ave., Finch Ave. and the East Don River. See Map.
The Bayview Village Association (BVA) is a non-profit community organization for residents of Bayview Village. Established in 1956, the BVA works towards enhancing the quality of life for the residents by building community, pride, city and community awareness and by addressing issues of concern to the neighbourhood.
In the News
Reports of several encounters with a white male, age 20, overweight, tall (5' 10" to 6'), carrying a skateboard and iPad. Male is exposing himself to lone female walkers in the East Don Parklands (the ravine) – in various locations. These events usually occur between 10 am and 4 pm and have been ongoing for several weeks. In at least one instance he hid in the bushes and actively pursued the walker. AVOID, do not engage, call police at 911 if you experience anything concerning. Carry a cell phone with you, do not walk alone.
There has been an incident reported of someone from "Efficiency Standards" approaching residents asking to have access to homes to check the water system. Residents are reminded not to let anyone in your home that is a stranger and with whom you have not made a prearranged appointment. A Google search points out a 'consumer alert' for anyone claiming to be from "Efficiency Standards"
