Commerce Decisions has secured a strategically important contract with Infrastructure Ontario (IO), a Crown Agency owned by the Province of Ontario. IO provides a wide range of services to support the Ontario government’s initiatives to modernize and to maximize the value of public infrastructure and real estate.
