The pandemic has given us pause to consider how the Toronto Region can come back stronger and what type of region we want to rebuild. This is by no means an end to big cities, but instead, an opportunity to make our cities better. The region’s ability to compound innovation and productivity by converging the talent of ambitious and creative people will be more than enough to offset the destructive power of a global pandemic. And this is happening in all areas of the Toronto Region.
Our downtown core is strong, but so are the opportunities across the region. We are building critical infrastructure to complement the needs of businesses and talent in the region. Progress and development have not stopped over the past year, as we collectively work toward building something even better. This signals a positive and encouraging trend. Strengthening the region as a whole stands to strengthen each individual municipality.
