What is the Mega-Region?

Our region is within 500 miles of 41% of the US population and 59% of the Canadian population. The opportunity for you to grow your business right across the border is tremendous – make that mega-tremendous! From the Buffalo Niagara region to Toronto and beyond – that’s what we are calling the Mega-Region with mega-potential for companies in the US and Canada.MegaRegionMap
