Dear members,

As we mark BILD’s 100th anniversary, we are looking forward to a year filled with celebration of our members and the industry that has been instrumental in building our diverse and vibrant Greater Toronto Area.

We are kicking off the festivities with a very special 11-week retrospective in the Toronto Star. Beginning on April 24 and published once per week, it will trace, decade by decade, the development of the GTA, and highlight the people, families, companies and policy decisions that built the region. It will be available in print and online, and we will link to each issue on this webpage, as it becomes available.

For a glimpse of the other celebrations we have planned for our centenary, I invite you to watch the video below. On this 100th anniversary webpage, you will also find greetings from our government partners, media coverage of our 100th anniversary, and updates on upcoming activities and events. Check back regularly, as we will update this page frequently.

Over the last century, our industry has helped build a region that is recognized as one of the great places in the world to call home. We have much to be proud of, and we at BILD hope you will join us in celebrating.
