Good Report Card for Kitchener

Taken directly from CMHC First Quarter 2011 edition of CMHC's Housing Now - Major Centres - Kitchener and Guelph

Overall,employment grew by more than 8,000 jobs in 2010 as Kitchener recovered from the economic downturn. Of all the Ontario CMAs, Kitchener had the strongest job growth, second only to Barrie. By the third quarter of 2010, all jobs lost in Kitchener during the recession had been recovered, as employment had returned and surpassed the level reached before the downturn –something that did not happen in Barrie despite the stronger 2010 job growth.
