The urban community of Toronto dates from 1793 when British colonial officials founded the Town of York on what was then the Upper Canadian frontier. That village grew to become the City of Toronto in 1834, and through its subsequent evolution and expansion, Toronto has emerged as one of the most liveable and multicultural urban places in the world.

During the Citywise™ Toronto event, the panel speakers delivered insight into how businesses and city officials are collaborating to help drive transparency and cooperation. Having a unified position on emergency response ensures that decision-making can be done promptly based on critical information that is readily available.

A key strategy for Toronto is to engage businesses, the community and the privacy commissioner to work together to build an extreme security plan where all aspects of the city are included in the design and management of the emergency plan in this ever-growing city.
