New Ripley's Aquarium for Toronto announced!
Toronto is one big step closer to getting its first major new tourist attraction since 1993. On August 17, 2011 Mayor Ford was at the base of the CN Tower to help announce details of Ripley's Aquarium of Canada — a $130-million facility now under construction, set to open during the summer of 2013. The City of Toronto will provide property tax incentives (estimated to be between $8 million and $12 million) over a 12-year period under the Imagination, Manufacturing, Innovation, Technology (IMIT) Grants program; which supports new building construction in targeted sectors, including tourism.
