This book explores an economic region stretching from Niagara Falls to Oakville (where the Toronto sprawl begins). This economic region takes in the political regions of Greater Hamilton, Halton and Niagara. With Hamilton at its core, the region encompasses over 1 million people and boasts a highly diversified economy. The book looks at this region on the cusp of a new millennium and examines how a new generation is being prepared for challenges ahead. The book combines detailed text with stunning photography by Paul Sparrow. It is a perfect blend of a community coffee table book with a business book.
