The Five Solitudes of Ontario:
A Regional Analysis of Labour Market Performance in Post-Recession Ontario
Ontario has experienced more than its share of economic pain in recent years. Between 2003 and 2014, real economic growth per person in Ontario has averaged just 0.3% annually. That’s less than one third of the rate of real per-person economic growth in the rest of the country, which averaged 1.1% annually. The economic pain in Ontario, how-ever, has not been spread evenly: there has been significant regional variation in eco-nomic performance within the province.
