Our Business and Professional Services Growth Connection

The highly diverse nature of Ontario’s economy has contributed to employment and GDP in the business and professional services sector growing at a faster rate than all other industries in the Province.



Among the largest business and professional services sector in North America, the GTA and surrounding Golden Horseshoe region including Dufferin County, is home to countless law and accounting firms, advertising and marketing agencies, customer care centres, management, engineering and architectural design consultancies, and human resource service firms.



The presence of a highly educated workforce, low operating costs and superior international connections provided by Toronto’s Lester B. Pearson International Airport means that enterprises in the region have a world class support network essential to success.
