The City of Mississauga’s Economic Development Office (EDO) received a Gold Excellence in Economic Development Award for its 2016 Sector Profiles project in the category of Special Purpose Print Brochure from the International Economic Development Council (IEDC).
The honour was presented at an awards ceremony on Tuesday, September 27, during the IEDC Annual Conference, in Cleveland, Ohio.
“Congratulations to Susan Amring and everyone from Mississauga’s Economic Development Office, who have rightly earned these multiple awards and distinctions. Mississauga is building a complete city – one where people can find good-paying jobs or take risks and launch new business ventures,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. "The award-winning work of the EDO allows Mississauga to enjoy its strong reputation as a global hub of creative and innovative activity where talent and business thrive.”
IEDC’s Excellence in Economic Development Awards recognize the world’s best economic development programs and partnerships, marketing materials and the year’s most influential leaders.
“Organizations like IEDC recognize the world’s best in economic development. We are honoured to be among the recipients, in particular for our marketing efforts,” said Susan Amring, Director of Economic Development. “Our sector profiles have proven to be effective for business attraction. They provide a targeted audience with information needed to make well-informed business investment decisions.”
The City’s Economic Development Office also received Honourable Mention for Top Canadian Economic Development Group as part of Site Selection’s “Canada’s Best Locations 2016 Award” rankings.
