“What a time to tout the Toronto region.”
In this episode of Colliers Talks, Colliers’ Matthew Johnson speaks with Toronto Global’s Matt Switzer about the reasons Toronto – and Canada – are the place to do business. With a mandate to “attract and support global companies to expand and do business in the Toronto Region,” government agency Toronto Global works with a full range of firms, from startups to Fortune 500 companies, helping them to not only perform their due diligence, but to fully understand the opportunities that lie in locating – and growing – in the Toronto market.
The Greater Toronto Area has a slew of advantages to offer the business community, including its booming tech sector, the top talent that emerges from its renowned universities and colleges, its stable economic climate, and its reputation as a safe city. These strengths, among many others, continue to fuel Toronto’s rapid growth and incite companies and people to call the city home.
With the mindset that “We’re Team Canada first and a win for a city is a win for everyone,” Matthew and Matt discuss the key benefits of setting up shop in Canada, from its progressive immigration policy, to its innovative A.I. strategy, to its global skills program that brings to the country “the best and brightest from around the world in a two- to three-week timeline.” While each Canadian city has a distinct offering and identity, according to Matt, as a country, we should “Pound the table, highlight what’s so good about us, give us a little bit of flare and swagger… and keep on keepin’ on, so that Toronto and Canada as a whole become synonymous with ‘greatness’, ‘forward-thinking’ and ‘international.’”
