2020 Virtual Business Summit Finch West LRT

The Finch West Virtual Business Summit

This year has seen many companies adapting to offer goods and services online – an unfamiliar tool to many business with storefronts. We’re also adapting the way we engage with local businesses by offering virtual events, such as educational webinars and information sessions for small business owners.

Taking place on December 11, the Finch West LRT 2020 Virtual Business Summit will offer presentations, discussions, and networking opportunities. We will bring together Mosaic Transit Group’s procurement team, community agencies and other large business owners in the project area to share information about business opportunities along the project corridor. As well, small business owners will share information about how they are contributing to the delivery of this transformational project.
