The story of Hamilton's economic development has always been one of geographic serendipity, and that's still true of the contemporary narrative you'll hear from boosters in various quadrants, whether the Chamber, EcDev, Council Chambers, Tourism Hamilton, Tradeport, CareGo, Fluke, CHML, the Ticats or our post-secondary institutions. Innovation Park will soon be a showcase for a partnership with Ford and the feds, developing drivetrains for hybrid vehicles. McMaster also has the transpo-centric MITL, a pot pourri of agencies who share interest in muscling up the city's identity as a transport hub, something that started with the Port Authority's enthusiasm for the Highway H2O initiative and which finds its twin in the push to develop the AEGD. The MITL advisory board features past and present Chamber chairs while the outgoing Chamber CEO graduated to lead TransHub Ontario, a champion of transportation and logistics and a company founded by Hamilton International Airport, Hamilton Port Authority and CareGo Innovative Solutions, later joined by the City of Hamilton and Fluke Transportation Group as partners.
