Congratulations to the first Local Economic Development (LED) cohort on completing the 2018-2019 program and earning their certificates through Ryerson University, Chang School of Business.
The City of Toronto Economic Development & Culture Division would like to acknowledge the six graduates whose enrollment was funded through the City's BIA Leadership Fund. Their effort and energy contributed to their successful completion of the program and we look forward to seeing what these emerging leaders can continue to bring to the BIA movement. Also, a big thank you to the mentors who provided the students with ongoing support and inspiration throughout the academic year.
As we celebrate the graduates, we would like to extend a warm welcome to the seven successful applicants for the 2019-2020 program and wish them well with their studies!
