The global COVID-19 pandemic is having far reaching effects in Toronto, including major impacts to what have been booming real estate and building industries. Many jobs and events are currently suspended, postponed, or affected in other ways, though UrbanToronto is still operating at full strength with our team working remotely. As a means to keep the public in the loop about the shutdowns, we'll be sharing information and status updates from around the industry on a daily basis.
Federal, provincial, and municipal governments expand subsidies in response to mounting economic concerns; Amexon Development Corporation offering free accommodation to front-line healthcare workers; and more industry-related news regarding the COVID-19 pandemic:
