The Regional Municipality of York Economic Development 2017 Year in Review Report reinforces York Region as top destination for business, talent and investment proving it’s a great time to work, live in and #LoveYR.

York Region is an excellent place for businesses of all sizes across a mix of industries to prosper. This is in part due to the support from York Regional Councils significant investment in programs and initiatives to fuel business and job growth. Despite a changing global digital economy, York Region remains a leader in innovation and has established itself as a hub for economic activity with a strong business community.

Highlights include:

  • Employment in up 3.3 per cent in York Region, outpacing national, provincial and Greater Toronto Area averages (learn more in this media release)
  • Over 3,000 jobs have been created across the Region since 2010 – supported through Regional business advocacy programs
  • Investments in infrastructure including the Toronto-York Spadina subway extension are driving major development and fueling economic growth
  • York Link continues to expand its reach digitally to attract employers, with 40,000 web visits and 18,600 social media followers last year
  • Innovation and research remain important - York Region was selected as a Smart 21 Community from approximately 380 global applicants

The 2017 Year in Review captures local business trends and provides an annual update on key activities taking place under York Region’s Economic Development Action Plan 2016 to 2019 which provides a road map to advance the Region’s local economy through 2019.
