EDCO proudly partnered with the University of Guelph, Seneca College, the University of Waterloo and urbanMetrics inc. to present the "Hot Button Roundtables" at the 2018 EDCO Conference in Toronto, Ontario. The session allowed conference delegates to take part in roundtables designed to foster discussion on topics such as workforce development, technology, investment attraction, entrepreneurship and transportation. Each of the fifteen roundtables was facilitated by students in economic development programs, who went on to author white papers on these issues. Special thanks to the students who took part in this session, as well their professors, Tara Vinodrai, Ryan Gibson, and Frank Miele.
