  • ICE Research

    In line with ICE’s mandate, the Committee identifies research projects that can inform the economic and labour force development activities of the three governments in Toronto. Starting in 2010, the committee posted two research opportunities on its website and selected external experts to prepare summary reports. The first two research projects were completed in spring 2011 and are posted below. The Committee will continue to identify research that is timely and useful to our stakeholders, and post contract research opportunities as they arise. In all cases reports reflect the views of the researchers and not necessarily of ICE or its members.


    NEW!!!! – Upcoming ICE Research Opportunity

    The Intergovernmental Committee for Economic and Labour Force Development (ICE) is seeking applications from qualified individuals, organizations and firms to explore the impact international students are having on Toronto’s economy, society and post-secondary education infrastructure.
