Canada’s major metropolitan regions are competing with other global cities for talent and investment. In such a world, cities need to know how they stack up against other globally competitive metro areas in this race for highly-skilled workers and business investment.
In this webinar, find out how five Canadian metropolitan areas— Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax—fare against 15 other global cities overall, and on Economy and Social categories.
The Economy category features 21 indicators that measure local economic performance and business environment. The 11 indicators in the Social category capture some of the societal and environmental complexities that distinguish a great metro region from a mediocre one. These measures underpin a region’s ability to lure educated, creative, and diverse people. It is a combination of success on all fronts that makes a region attractive to people and private investment.
Join Alan Arcand for this illuminating webinar showing how Canadian cities compare economically and socially against some of the leading metropolitan areas in the world. The analysis is based on Greater Vancouver Economic Scorecard 2016, prepared by The Conference Board of Canada for the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade. The Conference Board of Canada is well known for its city benchmarking reports, having completed similar exercises evaluating Toronto and Montréal.
