Toronto remains Canada’s top tech market, but Waterloo is fastest-growing: CBRE

Canadian cities are great places for international tech firms to set up shop

CBRE recently released its 2017 Scoring Canadian Tech Talent Report, and Toronto—Canada’s most populous city—“remains Canada’s top market for tech talent by a substantial margin.”

Toronto may have competition, however. Not only is “the Waterloo region growing at more than twice the speed,” it’s also North America’s “second-fastest-growing tech labour pool” after Charlotte, North Carolina.

As CBRE Canada’s executive managing director Paul Morassutti notes, Canadian cities generally are ideal for international tech firms to settle in, because of our “highly educated talent pools and immigration policies” designed to attract the world’s best tech professionals.
