Canada’s Innovation Corridor Business Council


Canada’s Innovation Corridor is a place where great talent is welcomed and nurtured, industries grow and thrive, and private and public sectors foster a globally leading environment for business, life and innovation.” [Corridor Business Council Terms of Reference]

The corridor – anchored by Toronto, Waterloo Region and Hamilton-Burlington, and enhanced by a diverse mix of complementary communities – generates more than 18% of Canada’s GDP and is second only to Silicon Valley measured by the number of start-ups. It boasts a strong manufacturing base coupled with a world-class technology sector and innovation system – an ideal clustering of economic strengths.
