The Toronto-Waterloo Region Corridor is a global centre of talent, growth, innovation and discovery. We’ve got leaders and dreamers, thinkers and funders, makers and first movers, and an old school work ethic.
Toronto is Canada’s corporate headquarters and a growing centre of finance, industry-led R&D and venture capital, with a stable economy and a competitive tax rate. Waterloo Region has the second highest density of startups in the world, along with the headquarters of some of Canada’s largest technology companies and development offices for leading global companies.
Together we have more than 15,000 technology companies employing more than 200,000 people along a 100 km corridor – creating the second largest technology cluster in North America. A highly-educated population with global ties, our labour force is drawn from the country’s largest cluster of research universities and technical colleges including research institutes devoted to Quantum Computing, Theoretical Physics and Artificial Intelligence.
Our dense, urban population embraces new discoveries and provides the perfect testing ground for digital technologies and emerging industries. We’re a modern ecosystem: diversified, driven, tolerant and motivated by discovery.
Perfectly situated for growth in the global marketplace, the Corridor connects to a major airport, a dynamic network of highways, transit and rail and boasts close proximity to the US market.
The Toronto-Waterloo Region Corridor is a place where ideas are born, opportunities arrive and industries have room to grow.
