Steve Clark, M.P.P., the Eastern Workforce Innovation Board and the 1000 Islands, Grenville and Valley Heartland Community Futures Development Corporations, invite you to the region’s top Economic Development event of the year. Join us for a day focused on Economic Development and Leadership. The Bill Thake Award will be presented. For the second year, the summit will be held virtually.

Tim Hudak, CEO of the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA), will give the opening keynote address at this year’s Leeds Grenville Economic Development Summit on November 19. As chief of Canada’s largest provincial real estate industry association, representing 78,000 realtors, Tim will talk about the big picture in Ontario’s current housing market, along with taking questions from summit attendees.

Tim joined OREA in 2016 following a distinguished 21 years of public service in the Ontario Legislature. Since becoming CEO in December, 2016, Tim and his team have focused on transforming OREA into Ontario’s most effective professional association that delivers high-impact advocacy on behalf of realtors and consumers, and provides quality services to members.
