“Toronto has been selected as Canada’s only city being considered for HQ2,” Badawey noted. “Although the Region of Niagara has not been selected for the sought-after headquarters, it is still imperative for us to participate with all of Ontario and work with the City of Toronto to ensure a robust bid is submitted.”

Badawey stated emphatically: “It is imperative we work together with all stakeholders, partners, repatriated talent, and neighbouring jurisdictions to focus on a submission that will ensure economic sustainability.”

“Niagara is well-positioned to contribute to the bid, which includes a strong supply chain that will benefit from such a large investment in the GTA. It will also strengthen the establishment of a digital entertainment-media cluster, integrating leading-edge technology with existing and future investment.”
