Major Announcement on Expo 2025
Key Results of Feasibility Study to be Released

Leaders & corporate supporters of Expo 2025 Canada will be releasing important findings from a privately-funded feasibility study on the costs and benefits of Toronto hosting a World Expo in 2025.

In June, City Council voted unanimously in favour of pursuing the feasibility study. The business case was carried out by Pricewaterhouse Coopers.

The key results to be released Friday will give the clearest picture yet to Torontonians of the potential benefits and costs of Expo2025.
