I would like to take a moment to share with residents a new economic development metric for the month of September. Previous metrics can be found on the City of Ottawa website here.
The metric outlines many economic statistics that may interest residents including economic growth, inflation, labour market, real estate, and construction. Some highlights include the growth of Canadian Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 0.6%, or that Ottawa’s labour market added 2500 jobs in July, posing the sixth consecutive monthly jobs increase.
I encourage any resident to take a look at the update in its entirety here.
