Top Cities for Canadian Employment in the Tech Sector

International and home-grown companies are relocating and expanding in Canada’s metro areas, but also in smaller regions where the tech industry is thriving. The 2019 Canadian Tech Talent Report ranked the country’s top 20 tech cities. The markets were based on the quality of labor, cost competitiveness, and talent availability. Jason Kiselbach, the managing director of CBRE, said it is good to see how each city is ranking so city policy can be guided.
