Economy

Pizza Pizza and Sunwing Airlines have their headquarters in Etobicoke. Skyservice, an airline, was headquartered in Etobicoke, until its demise. Canada 3000 had its headquarters in the City of Etobicoke before it became a part of Toronto; the headquarters remained there until the closing of the airline.

The construction industry in Etobicoke has been booming, with many new condominium towers being developed along the waterfront near Humber Bay and along Bloor Street. This has helped increase Etobicoke's population after a short period of decline. The Film and Television industry has been gaining promise in the area.

Etobicoke is also home to a rib fest that is held every year on Canada day long weekend at Centennial Park. The weekend is filled with amazing entertainment, food, midway, and great music.
