The Creative Capital Initiative report entitled Creative Capital Gains: An Action Plan for Toronto has been released in advance of its presentation to the City of Toronto’s Economic Development Committee Wednesday (May 4) at 9:30 am.
Unlike a typical City staff report, Creative Capital Gains is issued by an outside Advisory Council Co-Chaired by Robert J. Foster, Karen Kain and Jim Prentice. The report was requested by Economic Development Chair, City Councillor Michael Thompson: it presents six overarching recommendations with 33 specific action items designed to “strengthen Toronto’s economy and enhance our competitive advantage on the world stage,” writes the Councillor in the report’s forward. Co-Chair Robert Foster adds, “We are convinced that Toronto has everything it needs to stake out a strong and successful future as one of the world’s most liveable, creative and competitive cities. We must commit to the bold moves required to make it happen.”
