Posted on December 18, 2015
Written by Todd Latham

Toronto city councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam advocated for support of city’s Expo 2025 world fair bid to construction leaders attending the annual winter holiday lunch of the Residential and Civil Construction Alliance of Ontario (RCCAO) in North York. Among her selling points for the city of Toronto to host the famous international fair, she said that Expo could be a dynamic jobs and economic catalyst, including adding 23,500 jobs per year over eight years of preparation, $8 billion in new value added to GDP in the GTA, and $5 billion in new tax revenues.

If successful, the Toronto bid would be the third Expo held in Canada after Vancouver in 1986 and Montreal in 1967.
