Canadian markets had some of the highest tech-job growth in North America through 2020 and 2021, according to data released by CBRE through its Tech-30 report.
“Vancouver had the highest high-tech job growth at 44% and Toronto created the most jobs (60,000) over the past two years,” the report notes. Calgary, Ottawa, and Waterloo were identified by the report among 10 markets to watch moving forward.
Throughout Canada, CBRE believes that the tech sector may continue to outperform other sectors regardless of market challenges.
“Tech industry job growth remains well above the national average,” the report states. “Economic headwinds in the year ahead likely will slow but not end high-tech job growth.”
