Creativity, Convergence & Community Leadership

Markham’s future as a thriving, knowledge-based community is being built through a new 5-year Economic Development and Culture Strategy. 

  • Once complete, the strategy will serve as an economic blueprint that sets out our vision for tomorrow and the steps being taken to achieve it.
  • Building a friendly environment for new-economy businesses means, Markham is focused on attracting and retain employment in the following sectors:
  • Technology – with an emphasis on semiconductor, hardware production and associated software development.
  • Professional, Scientific and Technical Services – with a focus on expanding engineering, management and consulting expertise.
  • Finance and Insurance – growing the presence of global insurance and finance companies, while leveraging Markham’s tech ecosystem to support innovation in this sector.
  • Creative Industries – with an emphasis on recognizing the important role design and creativity play in innovation, supporting artists, film and multimedia production.

Markham will achieve this growth by providing people with the environment they need to thrive, with vibrant community networks, a foundation of arts and culture, strong global linkages, sustainable infrastructure, and unparalleled health and wellness support.
