UofT Planning Alumni Spring Social


Toronto is becoming a very big city region. The extraordinary increase in activity at Toronto Pearson Airport is both effect and cause of that growth. The airport is one of the fastest growing in North America and is now the number two North American point of entry for international passengers, rapidly joining an elite group of global mega-hub airports. At the same time, the employment zone around Toronto Pearson has grown to become the second-largest concentration of jobs in Canada after downtown Toronto.

Joe Berridge and his team at Urban Strategies are helping the Greater Toronto Airports Authority to plan the Pearson Hub, a new multi-model transportation center. This new facility would tie together all the transit potential in and around Toronto Pearson to serve both the airport, the employment zone, and to provide better regional connectivity, transforming and expanding the airport’s role as a driver of regional economic growth.

At the 2017 Friends of Planning Spring Social, Urban Strategies’ partner Joe Berridge will share his insight on what it will take for Toronto Pearson International Airport to take off to the next level, and the benefits this will bring to the city, the Southern Ontario Region, and the country at large.
