CULTURE IS AN ECONOMIC POWERHOUSE
Toronto’s thriving arts and culture sector is a key economic driver and a major reason companies, and people, choose Toronto as their home. Because of culture’s profound impact on the livability and attractiveness of our City, supporting it is a major focus of the Economic Development & Culture Division. As Chair of the Economic Development Committee, Councillor Thompson has worked to create a new culture plan for Toronto, establish new cultural links with other major cities, rejuvenate cooperation throughout the arts and culture sector and inject energy into our performing arts.
