The Market year 2018 reports that the Toronto region is attracting an increasing level of recognition as a global centre for business growth, talent and productivity. This growth is fueled by Toronto’s booming real estate market, record levels of high- and mid-rise building construction and a rapidly growing population – thanks, in part, to Canada’s generous immigration policies. As a result, we see inclusive, diverse business communities and a well-diversified economy.

to government policy.” Toronto Real Estate Board
