Toronto: A Hub For Financial Services

Toronto is Canada's corporate headquarters hub, and nowhere is that more evident than in the financial services industry. With approximately 30 per cent of all financial services headquarters in Canada, Toronto has by far the highest concentration of these businesses of any city in the country. But while Toronto could be called our financial centre, it has yet to make the jump to becoming an international or even global hub for the financial sector. Toronto compares favourably on most of the key drivers that make a city attractive for head offices, including regulatory certainty, telecommunications infrastructure, and high concentration of financial institutions. So what is Toronto missing? The Conference Board’s own Lin Ai discusses the reasons why Toronto is already a centre for financial services headquarters in Canada, and the biggest things holding it back from being even more globally competitive.

The China Effect on Vancouver's Housing Market

This recorded webinar explores the state of the Vancouver housing market, the underlying factors driving the markets, and the medium-term outlook for housing in Vancouver. Vancouver’s housing market is like no other in Canada, and not just because the prices are higher than other Canadian major cities.

Ottawa Housing Webinar

Ottawa's housing market is cooling. With the federal government implementing reductions to the public sector workforce, Ottawa's economic and employment growth is among the weakest among major Canadian cities. As a result, population and income growth is slowing, which is causing sales and listings to drop and price growth to stagnate. Robin Wiebe will outline how the Ottawa housing market is being affected by the federal government's fiscal restraint and how the different market segments are faring in a tepid economy.
