New Updates

This week a lot of solid work went into updating each local business's partner organizations. You'd be surprised at how many businesses overlap which shows you that Toronto has a strong network of tying companies and corporations. All my information was listed on a spread sheet with links to each partnering organization's contact info. There are partnering organizations abroad from beyond Toronto and even the country which would be great in expanding the website's social interface and giving us more publicity. If you have any input on how we can make the blog or the website stronger or you have a business that you'd like us to list please don't hesitate to contact our webpage.

Thank you,

M.C.
