Business Districts: a new model for our regional economy
To provide effective solutions we must expand our understanding of the regional economy beyond geographical boundaries. Instead, we’ve introduced a business districts framework to examine our economy based on key physical, economic, and workforce characteristics.
We’ve analyzed each of the business districts to better understand the economic impact of the pandemic and identify how to support their recovery. The same districts can also be found across the globe.
Pilot Zones: highlighting the needs and learnings of a business district
We focused on three areas across the greater Toronto area to determine needs and solutions that can be applied to similar districts, globally. In each, we established a pilot zone, where we engaged key organizations to explore that zone’s needs to operate safely through the COVID-19 pandemic.
