  • 131st ANNUAL DINNER – ADVANCING THE GLOBAL REGION, PRESENTED BY ODGERS BERNDTSON

Last year, we asked the Toronto region to embrace the global spotlight. Many eyes are now squarely focused on what our region can—and will­­—deliver, but our work isn’t done. In an era marked by trade uncertainty and frayed institutions, the big and small successes of global cities display the strength found in communities that understand the benefits of co-operation. From a flourishing tech sector fuelled by powerful incubators, a global financial engine, not to mention world-leading AI research poised to revolutionize the world, it’s time for us to come together to advance the global region.
