York Region Employment Survey and Business Directory
The York Region Employment Survey is the largest and most comprehensive collection of employment locations across the Region’s nine local municipalities.
The York Region Employment Survey collects information such as Company Name, Address, Key Contact, Business Activity and Number of Employees for over 28,000 businesses, effectively promoting the York Region business community to the general public.
The dataset has continually grown, with the number of businesses increasing 2.3% annually between 2002 and 2012. As of 2012, there were an estimated 527,500 jobs in the Region.
Recent employment growth in a number of industry sectors has contributed to the diversification of an already broad-based economy. This diversification helps to insulate our economy from sectoral shifts in the business cycle.
We hope you will find this information helpful in discovering opportunities for growing your company, building relationships and conducting business with other York Region companies.
Note: The 2012 York Region Employment Survey includes all companies with a physical presence in York Region e.g. office/retail/warehouse/factory locations, but excludes farm based businesses. Home-based businesses are currently included on a voluntary basis.
