2013 Insight Magazine: Toronto
One could accurately say that there are two sides to the immigration coin in Toronto: an economic side and a cultural side. The economic angle is clear: Toronto’s economy can’t function without immigrants, and the region’s business leaders want more immigrants to come. The cultural angle is likewise clear: what was once an almost entirely Caucasian population is growing increasingly diverse, a trend that promises only to accelerate.
In this issue of Insight, the Economy League examines how Toronto’s encouragement of cultural integration has, in turn, helped the city capture the economic benefits of immigration.
