Are you interested in local labour market information?



February 22, 2011

We all know Hamilton’s manufacturing industry has experienced tremendous loss in terms of jobs and revenue over the past decade. But did you know…

Manufacturing, more specifically primary metal manufacturing, is still the most prominent industry for employment in our city. And within that sub sector, iron and steel mills stands out. That is, employment within these subsectors in Hamilton as a proportion of all jobs in Hamilton is sixteen times larger than the proportion for Ontario.

And manufacturing isn’t all Hamilton has to offer. Find out which occupations and industries offer the most opportunity in Hamilton.
