The annual summit is organized by Canada’s Innovation Corridor Business Council, a partnership of leading chambers of commerce and boards of trade in the Greater Golden Horseshoe. Each year, a city within the Corridor gathers their community and delegates from the region to address a different topic. Throughout the years, Canada’s Innovation Corridor Summit has brought delegates together to discuss and promote: advanced manufacturing, talent in the region, innovation and technology disruption.
“With all levels of government making commitments toward reducing global emissions, it’s clear a significant economic transformation is forthcoming – and Canada’s Innovation Corridor is poised to take the lead,” said Marie Nash, Interm CEO of the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce. “The Hamilton Chamber is pleased to be the host community for our annual summit, to discuss how the Corridor can utilize its strengths and talents to lead economic and environmental change for our region.”
“As we emerge from the shadow of the pandemic, this year’s Summit presents a vital opportunity for the Innovation Corridor to come back together to focus on issues that demand our attention. As Canada’s largest economic zone, the Corridor is primed to lead in the climate economy and the transition to net-zero. These discussions are essential to identifying collaborative solutions that not only address climate change but spur our innovation economy.” – Jan De Silva, Co-Chair, Canada’s Innovation Corridor Business Council and President and CEO, Toronto Region Board of Trade
