Sustainable Hamilton – enabling sustainability in business
The City of Hamilton, Ontario is a city on the cusp of change. Although most Canadians think of Hamilton as “steel town,” the people who live and work here know this is only part of the story. The Niagara Escarpment, running right through Hamilton provides over 100 waterfalls and is a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. We have world-class academic and healthcare institutions, an educated workforce and we are developing many exciting new technologies.
