“We are planning for now, tomorrow, and more importantly for many years forward…”

Today, Mayor Brian Bigger delivered his sixth State of the City address live from the Mayor’s Office at Tom Davies Square. The address was delivered to a virtual audience and was hosted by the Greater Sudbury Chamber of Commerce.

In a review of the prominent initiatives the City of Greater Sudbury has been working on during the COVID-19 Pandemic, Mayor Bigger identified various investments and meaningful projects occurring throughout the City in key areas such as community recreation, economic development, public transit and infrastructure.

“The building activity numbers we saw in 2020 spoke volumes about the resilience of our community, investor confidence in the local market, and our focus on economic vitality and growth. It’s very encouraging to see those strong numbers continuing in 2021.”

After 19 months of navigating the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayor Bigger highlighted the strength of Greater Sudbury as we move forward with a new level of hope in our community.

“Home to over 160,000 we have a diverse population, and a vibrant and thriving economy. We have lots to celebrate. I am proud to call Greater Sudbury home. I am sure you are also.”

Mayor Bigger also gave thanks to the dedicated individuals working on the frontlines during the pandemic, and praised the successful and ongoing vaccination efforts orchestrated by Public Health Sudbury & Districts and in collaboration with the City of Greater Sudbury.
