Hamilton stands with twenty other regions that lead in investment and job creation
Hamilton is honoured to be named one of Canada’s best locations to invest in 2021. Each year Site Selection Magazine selects a group of twenty economic development organizations that reflect Canada’s best locations for investment. This year marks Hamilton’s second time earning this award.
Site Selection Magazine noted that Hamilton’s “economic development team had surpassed their stretch target of 7 million sq. ft. of new commercial real estate between 2016 and 2020, which was more than double the 3 million sq. ft. achieved between 2011 and 2015.”
Hamilton also earned recognition for McMaster University’s partnership with McMaster Innovation Park to launch The Global Nexus for Pandemics and Biological Threats. Site Selection Magazine also recognized the Government of Canada’s $400 million support to ArcelorMittal Dofasco’s investment of more than $1.7 billion to convert their steel production process away from coal-fired production. A complete list of winners is available in the official announcement.
