Biotech/medicine seems like a logical choice given Mac's emphasis seems to be weighted more towards medicine and engineering. Material sciences too since we already have the CANMET facility coming and Mac's close ties with the local steel companies.

Green tech also seems like a good idea. I seem to recall an article I read a couple years ago where a company who builds offshore wind turbines wanted to build a few in the Great Lakes. Specifically Lakes Erie and Ontario where you get fairly consistent winds but with shallower water depths. And as anyone who drives regularly over the Skyway can tell you we definitely get some good winds in this area.

The aerospace industry could also work since we have an international airport close by. Mississauga is already well established in this area but its an expensive city and new start ups might find cheaper office space here.

There really are a lot of options.
