The Great Mosaic Reviving Ontario's Regional Economics

“We are only as strong as our weakest link and our ability to prosper depends on the strength of our different regions. Our communities – and the province as a whole – risk falling behind if we do not leverage the rich and diverse competitive advantages of our local economies. We urge policymakers to take a modern and comprehensive approach to economic development by leveraging the existing competitiveness advantages of Ontario’s regions, and implement deliberate strategies to support long-term growth in communities across the province.”

• Today, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) released a new report, The Great Mosaic: Reviving Ontario’s Regional Economies.
• The report outlines how government of all levels can work with industry to unleash the potential of Ontario’s regional economies and reinforce the competitiveness of the province as a whole.
• We are only as strong as our weakest link and our ability to prosper depends on the strength of our different regions.
• Economic and population growth rates in the Greater Golden Horseshoe and Ottawa have far surpassed those in other areas of the province.
• Our communities – and the province as a whole – risk falling behind if we do not leverage the rich and diverse competitive advantages of our local economies.
• The Great Mosaic: Reviving Ontario’s Regional Economies examines the opportunities and challenges faced by different communities across the province and offers a framework for thinking about the present and future of Ontario’s regional economies.
• We urge policymakers to take a modern and comprehensive approach to economic development by leveraging the existing competitiveness advantages of Ontario’s regions, and implement deliberate strategies to support long-term growth in communities across the province.
