PERSPECTIVE COLLABORATES WITH A SMART CITY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Oakville, Ontario, Thursday, June 27, 2013 - Perspective Marketing Inc. is proud to present Perspective Kingston 2013. Distributed on 27 June 2013, the Perspective Kingston 2013 supplement reaches over 300,000 readers through targeted distribution in The Globe and Mail and Canada Post, making it a financially accessible way to get your business into Canada's must read newspapers. Copies are also distributed to every business in Kingston via Canada Post direct mail with additional copies available at local libraries, community centres, tourism centres, the Kingston Economic Development Corporation and Kingston City Hall. 

When Kingston-area communities amalgamated in 1998 the new City of Kingston was formed under motto of “Where history and innovation thrive.” Fifteen years later that investment is paying huge dividends as Kingston was named one of the planet’s 21 Smartest Communities in 2013 by the Intelligent Community Forum, and one of Canada’s Top Mid-sized City by MoneySense Magazine. 

Mayor Mark Gerretsen notes that the eighth-place ranking as a smart community speaks volumes about the 124,000 community, “Kingston insiders have long known that their hometown lives up to its motto, already well-known for being Canada’s richly historic first capital, now we can prove it to the world.”

A key to Kingston’s innovative capability is the presence of Queen’s University, Royal Military College of Canada, and St. Lawrence College. Located halfway between Toronto and Montreal, right on Highway 401, and minutes from a U.S. border crossing with easy access to markets is another.

“We loved the size of the downtown, the waterfront, the big-city amenities and the walkability, and there were opportunities for both of our careers,” says recent immigrant Ruth Noordegraaf.
