The Toronto Region is a centre of innovation, but a lack of up-to-date regulation stymies growth in the digitally-oriented “New Economy.” New regulations are needed to unleash technological innovation and associated economic growth. 

This is why the Toronto Region Board of Trade designed a set of Regulatory Principles for the New Economy, which can act as a starting point for building new, competitive regulatory systems.

This will be essential to ensure we continue to attract jobs and investments after this pandemic has passed.
