Better procurement practices are just one tool Toronto can employ to help save $2.2 billion over the next five years, a Toronto Board of Trade report says. “Experts suggest as much as 20 per cent savings annually can be extracted (from procurement reform),” stated the board’s report. “Improving this process should produce a savings for the city of at least 10 per cent of procured purchases or at least $100-million each year.” The board’s recent report, Bridging the Chasm: Fixing the City’s Finances, found Toronto’s structural deficit will grow to $1.19 billion by 2019.

since 1911, paid for through various subsidies. As part of a broad scheme of the federal government to modernize the administration of ports, operate ports in a business-like manner and divest itself of smaller ports, the TPA was set up in 1999 to operate the harbour and the airport. Toronto City Council, then developing its own plans for the harbour and waterfront, opposed the creation of the TPA, wishing to take over the harbour administration as a city function. The new mission, to be self-sufficient, has led the TPA to pursue opportunities to increase its revenues, including expansion of the airport, and the building of the ...
Toronto road tolls go from abhorrent to approved: how'd that ...
reported on Saturday, and other papers have followed since, that the Toronto City Summit Alliance has released a new report calling for a bunch of new measures to control traffic and improve transit spending in Toronto. The recommendations read like an urban planner’s dream: tolls on the freeways coming into the city, parking surcharges and a couple of different gas taxes. Of course, two years ago, people proposing road tolls for the GTA were being shouted down and probably accused of being Communists. What changed? In 2008, a Trent University academic said road tolls were a matter of when, not if, for the GTA. “I got the ... market research, surveys and trends
Deadline for Pan Am stadium non-negotiable, says ...
The Toronto 2015 PanAm Games CEO today gave an ultimatum to Hamilton officials: a preferred location for the stadium and velodrome must be submitted to the organizing committee by July 8. “At the end of the day, we need to have a definite location by July 8,” Ian Troop told reporters in Toronto. “Timing is our issue and we want to make sure it all works out.” In the meantime, Troop, who spoke to members of the Toronto Board of Trade at their annual general meeting, said the 2015 organization has become more involved in seeking alternative locations for the proposed stadium and velodrome, so far earmarked to Hamilton.

Industry Canada Site - Notes for an Address byThe HonourableJim ...
My theme today is Canada's automotive industry — a Canadian manufacturing giant and a source of national pride. How will we keep it at the forefront of the global automotive industry in the 21 st  century? Canada's automotive leadership has deep roots. One of North America's great industrial pioneers was "Colonel Sam" McLaughlin. Sam's father made horse-drawn carriages near Oshawa. By the beginning of the 20 th  century, the McLaughlins were one of the most successful carriage makers in the British Empire. The McLaughlin carriages were known for their high-quality workmanship.

The Board of Trade Discovers Transit Funding « Steve Munro's Web Site
After years of howling that taxes in Toronto are too high, that no business would dream of locating here, that the Toronto economy is going down the tubes because politicians are not generous enough with their handouts, the business community has discovered transit funding as a major issue. The Toronto Board of Trade published The Move Ahead:  Funding “The Big Move” , a document arguing that lack of infrastructure investment, specifically in transit, is a serious impediment to economic vitality in the Greater Toronto Area.  The Board’s report is based on a June 2008 Metrolinx report , but adds observations ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Bank tax misses point: Flaherty
Canada's finance minister said Thursday countries calling for a global bank tax are not focusing on the most important issues in worldwide financial reform. Jim Flaherty made his remarks to the Toronto Board of Trade two days before the city hosts world leaders at the G20 summit. Flaherty says Canada already taxes its banks quite heavily. (Jim Ross/Canadian Press) Flaherty said the countries calling for the tax, such as Britain and the United States, used taxpayer money for bank bailouts, but Canada already taxes its banks quite heavily, and there is no need for a punitive tax in this country. Australia, Brazil, Japan, and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Peter Kuitenbrouwer: Ford's day hit by Tory musings
Toronto mayoral candidate Rob Ford, right, works the crowd in front of John Tory at the Regional Economic Forum hosted by the Toronto Board of Trade in Toronto Monday June 14, 2010 June 15, 2010 – 6:30 am Monday’s Toronto Board of Trade event was supposed to be Councillor Rob Ford’s moment to shine. After all, a poll in the morning paper put him, for the first time, in the lead in the mayoral race. There was just one problem: the man seated next to Mr. Ford at the round table, making idle chit-chat as the assembled chowed down on tarragon-scented organic chicken supreme with Ontario asparagus and spun Yukon Gold potatoes. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Reliable mailing list sources for a Toronto campaign? | LinkedIn ...
I'm considering putting together a DM campaign to a few selected industry groups in the core of downtown Toronto. Wondering if there is a reliable mailing list source that someone has gone through before for a similar project, because a simple Google search delivers way too many results and I can't seem to feel confident in any of them. BTW, I know of Toronto's Board of Trade executive mailing list. Looking for something in addition to that.
