Toronto attracts the best technical talent
Canadian Toronto attracts the most technical talents and is ranked third, following the American San Francisco’s and Seattle. According to an annual CBRE report, these are three top cities for technology talent in North America. The city’s technology market has seen significant growth over the past five years, with more than 80,000 new jobs emerged. CBRE’s report clearly states that is a result of Canada’s immigration policy, investment in new businesses and the strength of the Canadian venture capital market. Cities were rated based on talent supply, office and housing inflation, and market growth prospects. While Toronto has taken a top spot, Waterloo and Hamilton are not far behind with technology sector growth of 40% and 52%, respectively.
