TORONTO, Oct. 1, 2012 /CNW/ - Key business and civic leaders in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) come together at BMO Financial Group's Institute for Learning on Thursday, October 4th to discuss some of Ontario's most pressing economic challenges and formulate a GTA response, in the province's very first Regional Economic Leadership Series.
The Ontario Chamber of Commerce and 15 local GTA Chambers are gathering community and corporate leaders to develop an economic vision for Ontario that will focus on five priorities: innovation and productivity, a 21st century workforce, fiscal balance, global opportunities and identifying Ontario's competitive advantages.
An initiative of the Ontario Economic Summit, the Regional Economic Leadership Series has toured eight communities across the province. The Series highlights regional economic priorities while asking participants to table recommendations and commit to a local action plan.
These eight regional plans will be brought together in November at the Ontario Economic Summit, where a provincial plan to help Ontario emerge stronger will be developed.
