Security is a primary concern for the Yaletown BIA in order to keep Yaletown a safe and enjoyable place to work and visit. Through partnerships with the Vancouver Police Department, ICBC Autowatch, residential strata councils and the Yaletown BIA’s private security provider, Yaletown remains safe for Yaletown property owners, businesses and customers.

If you have security concerns and would like a security guard to check on your business, please contact the Yaletown BIA at (604) 683-7473.
Please note, the Yaletown BIA’s hours of operation are Mon – Fri, 9am – 5pm.
