The City of Toronto Economic Development and Culture Division is working to create its first integrated Economic Development & Culture Divisional Strategy.
The existing two strategies - Creative Capital Gains and Collaborating for Competitiveness - provided direction for the City at large and included recommendations and actions for EDC as well as other City Divisions, agencies and partners.
In order to develop a comprehensive strategy, the City needs to understand the current economic development and culture challenges and opportunities facing Toronto. As a starting point the City has created a Conversation Guide that highlights key emerging economic and cultural trends and challenges facing Toronto and the City is asking its stakeholders for their input via an online survey or written submission.
Your feedback and input is vital to the development of the Divisional Strategy as well. I invite you to review the Conversation Guide and provide your thoughts and feedback through our online survey or written submission. The Conversation Guide and Survey is now available online through Engage Toronto and closes on October 2, 2017.
A series of public Town Hall consultations have also been scheduled for September.
