A welcoming and increasingly diverse community, Greater Sudbury has a vision to be recognized as one of the smartest, greenest and more sustainable cities in the world.

Since the discovery of rich mineral deposits in the late 1800s, the economy in the Greater Sudbury area has followed closely the boom and bust cycles of the mining industry. But over the years, the local economy has significantly diversified and is now a service hub for the Northeastern region of Ontario.

Today the City of Greater Sudbury functions as a regional shopping destination, servicing a catchment area extending across Northeastern Ontario. It is also a leader and centre of excellence for mining, healthcare, tourism, technology, retail, education and government in the region.
