Hamilton Economic Development

September is a BIG Month in Hamilton

September came in like a lion for the City of Hamilton!  Not only did Navistar announce their intent to construct a new 250,000 square foot auto parts distribution centre in the Red Hill Business Park  but Site Selection Magazine out of Atlanta, GA ranked Hamilton as the top investment city in Canada.  This is truly exciting news and an even more exciting time to be investing in Hamilton.  There is some real momentum in the economy and it is great to see a number of projects both big and small starting to happen in Hamilton. 

Even more good news, Hamilton’s industrial vacancy rate is now sitting at 2.3% and the industrial permits to as of the end of August is now at $148.9 million, a record for Hamilton and the year isn’t even over yet!

But, it’s not all about hard economic numbers, there is fun to be had in Hamilton too – especially the downtown.  This weekend Hamilton once again is home to Supercrawl- a showcase of great Hamilton and Canadian music that will bring over 50,000 people to the James Street North Arts District (www.supercrawl.ca).  C’mon downtown and see the great creative industries that are growing in the core.

With so many great things are happening here, why not be part of the happening?




Ranked Canada's most diversified economy, home to Canada's busiest multi-modal cargo airport, the busiest port on the Canadian Great Lakes, and centrally located within a one hour drive to Toronto, Waterloo and the Niagara/US Border, Hamilton is at the center of it all. With two internationally renowned post-secondary institutions in the city (surrounded by 23 other), a diverse and learned workforce and both ample greenfield and urban sites upon which to build, we're ready for your investment.
