In partnership with TD Bank Group, on October 27 the Town of Orangeville will host its annual Economic Outlook Summit featuring a keynote address by James Marple, Director and Senior Economist at TD. Mr. Marple works with a team of economists to monitor and assess the global economy with a focus on North America. The keynote address will include an analysis of the Canadian economy and financial markets and offer insights on economic and financial developments pertinent to the local economy.
