Focus on Regional Connectivity in Support of Local Jobs and Prosperity

“The Bay Area is part of a dynamic regional economy that is putting Canada on the world map as a leader in smart manufacturing, artificial intelligence, digital health, financial technologies, and other new and emerging markets,” said Keanin Loomis, president and CEO of the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce.
The summit program, created in cooperation with a regional advisory committee, will focus on four interrelated topics: 1. Tech North Innovation Supercluster: Benefits for Bay Area companies, startups, entrepreneurs and institutions
2. Regional Goods Movement: The Bay Area play for improved connectivity
3. Climate Action: Economic advantages for the Bay Area community
4. Smart Intensification: Compact development of employment and residential lands in the Bay Area
