Toronto Mayor John Tory will visit Guelph in March during the 2018 Regional Economic Summit, where he will talk about economic opportunities across the Toronto-Waterloo corridor, which includes the city of Guelph.

"I'm excited to share the story of this region as a place where we nurture great talent, grow our industries and engage the public in finding innovative solutions."
Tory will be a keynote speaker at the summit, which is hosted annually by the Guelph Chamber of Commerce.
"He is a key voice in our efforts to change the way we look at economic development – from cities competing with each other, to joining together as one globally-competitive region," said Guelph mayor Cam Guthrie in a release.
"Those efforts are paying off, with Provincial commitments to two-way all-day GO trains and high-speed rail."
The summit will also host a regional leaders panel that will focus on building partnerships between different levels of government, institutions, and the private sector.
