Los Angeles Business Mission
Mayor John Tory and Councillor Michael Thompson (Ward 37 Scarborough Centre), Chair of the Economic Development Committee, will join a delegation of 22 Toronto companies and organizations to Los Angeles from January 23 to 25.
Los Angeles-based studios continue to be a strong investor in Toronto’s market, responsible for over $800M in direct investment in 2016. The main objectives of the mission are:
- To re-connect with the City’s key industry partners and investors at the Los Angeles film studios to present the deliverables and ongoing initiatives of the Five Point Plan adopted by City Council, which was a direct result of the February 2016 mission.
- To cultivate relationships with prospective investors, companies and key stakeholders to pursue new business opportunities of high potential growth.
- To provide a platform to network and promote Toronto internationally as an investment destination for the creative industries.
- To support the City's strategic priorities to increase economic vitality, create jobs, and generate investment in Toronto.
